This is a photo of Glasgow Road at the junction of Bardykes Road. It’s 1890 or so and a group of miners stand outside the West End Bar (Robert Craig’s Pub). Robert at the time also was about to demolish the Clive Place Public House at the junction of Stonefield Road and build his Old Original Pub, giving him two pubs on Glasgow Road.
Perhaps the miners were on their way to Bardykes Colliery or Blantyreferme. Clearly a working , non sabbath day.
