1941 River Clyde Pipebridge


1941 March Pipebridge at Clyde wmThis Blantyre photo was taken in World War Two.

Pictured on the banks of the River Clyde in March 1941 is the pipebridge crossing the River Clyde from Blantyre Village to Bothwell. Taken by the Smith family and shared here by Anthony Smith, you can even see the old suspension bridge further up the river, nearer the weir.

This scene looks surprisingly very similar today, although there are many more trees. It can be accessed over the railway beyond John Street.
