Pictured during 1910’s is High Blantyre Main Street. The Post office on the far left, with Andrew Gilmour’s shop adjacent. It would appear that one of the Gilmours may be standing in the doorway for the photo. A small child sits outside the post office, perhaps waiting for him mammy inside. It’s a great photo.
The space further along between the tenements is now where Family Shopper is. I think i much prefer seeing this part of High Blantyre as a prominent retail area.
