1931 Broompark Road

A fantastic photo of Broompark Road. Taken in 1931, just a few years after the construction of these homes, this photo is taken from the cross, looking up Broompark Road straight ahead, Stonefield Crescent on the right outwith the photo.

My photo from 2009, some 78 years later, shows the same view, with some windows made larger, the tall chimneys removed and of course the Warnock’s Laun tenement building in the background, demolished.
