I like this aerial photo of Crossbasket and Greenhall from 1971. Not just because it shows the old Greenhall pitch n putt buildings, but it was a time in between the various phases of the EK Expressway being built.
By 1971, the EK to Crossbasket section of road had been completed, and is demonstrated nicely in this photo, with the EK Expressway, simply “ending” at Greenhall, merging into the smaller Hamilton Road leading down into High Blantyre. This is before Smellie’s detached house was built across from Greenhall.
