1970s Parkville

Cathy MacDonald Scott shared this photo saying, “A friend sent me this photo taken in Blantyre in 1970/71? She cannot remember the name of the establishment. The quality of the photo makes it difficult to read the sign by the door. Anyone recognize it?”


It is of course the Parkville on Glasgow Road! What’s YOUR memories of the Parkville in this era?
