Masonic Hall / Elm Court Flats
When the Masonic Buildings further west along Glasgow Road were demolished in the late 1970’s, the lodge built a new brick building at the bottom of Elm Street, where Sprott’s / Kidd’s Building had been.
Their time as the 599 Club there was short lived before moving out in 1988 to the lodge in High Blantyre. It then became Cobblers Pub until a murder occurred in 1992. In 1993 the brick building was sold off as modern flats.
