1978 / 79 Blantyre Community Centre

A snowy scene from winter 1978 going into 1979 and still on the South Side of Glasgow Road was the former Blantyre Community Centre.

A familiar sight up until just after the Millennium years, the community centre is of course now demolished. Next door, Richardson’s Garage selling “Fina” Fuel, beyond that Roselea Cottage and Rowan Place.

The photo was shared kindly by Sandy Wilkie.
