I love this colourised postcard from the 1890’s. Such a quiet rural scene. Taking your horse, unhooking from the cart, down off the Bothwell Road for a drink at the river.
A sunny day, the river low, this looks a summer scene as the boys play in the burn, the boundary between Blantyre and Hamilton Parishes.
