This new colourised photo was taken in Broompark Road, at Barnhill. I’ve been told it is 1948, but know that it must be earlier than that. The buildings on the right had all been demolished by the 1930s.
A horse and cart come over the crest of the hill and the buildings all appear remarkably well kept and whitewashed. The Barnhill smiddy is on the left in the foreground, where in this era, Templetons worked their ironmongery business.
