Following the recent story about the road bridge near the Priory Bridge, here are more photos kindly shared by Alex Rochead. Built in 1928, the road to Halfway runs over the top of this, the bridge out of view from traffic.
Alex told me, “These photos of the road bridge were taken many years ago before I had a digital camera. The bridge was later repaired, cleaned and the graffiti removed. New writing has been added.”
For a bridge that many Blantyre residents don’t know exists it has clearly been visited often. One name on the graffiti is “Frilly”. Wonder who that was!?
