Another excellent photo of Caldergrove House, once located behind Bardykes. During WW1, when it was taken over as an Auxiliary Hospital providing much needed care to soldiers injured in the war.
This quality photograph from Gordon Cook shows the medical staff and patients outside the front door. I’ve zoomed in to pick out some of the detail.

Blantyre Project Keith Thanks. I still have to write about this house in any sort of detail. It only briefly features in my Glasgow Road book, but will get to it eventually.
