As I buy and acquire better photographs, I’m upgrading the previous copies I had with higher resolutions. This postcard is of David Livingstone Memorial Bridge, taken in 1966. As always, the un-watermarked copy is held for Blantyre Project Publications and Exhibitions, but if you would like a copy of any un-watermarked photo, feel free to ask me.
A cyclist makes his way from the Blantyre side over the 2nd bridge which spans the River Clyde to Bothwell. a shadowy figure lurks adjacent to the bridge perhaps trying to get out the way of the photographer. I’ve heard stories of people taking their cars over this bridge!
This is NOT the bridge there today. A third bridge was built in 1999, replacing this one pictured demolished in Summer 1999.
