Blantyre man Tom Robertson gave me a copy of this aerial photo.
Pictured from above is Blantyre in 1947, just after WW2. The most prominent feature is probably the length of Stonefield Road and the junction with Glasgow Road. You can see also Dixon’s Rows, the former miners homes spanning off Stonefield Road and of course just how rural Blantyre was even as recently as the 1940s.
This photo was actually put together by me by a rather painful process of copying, pasting, nudging, aligning, re-arranging etc. and was altogether a full night’s work for Mr Gordon Cook, so it is much appreciated.
