Staying with the 1980’s in this photo, dating from around the mid 80’s. I’d almost forgot about the “Co-op Supersave” shop, that was so popular in this area. The picture takes me back to being a teenager, running errands at lunchtimes up to ‘Oor Wullies’ to get rolls and something for lunch to bring back to the house.
This was obviously before the Ladrbrokes block of shops was built, although the carpark is still familiar. In the background, beyond the Priestfield tree, the Apollo Bar would still have been open. The photo taken from the junction of Broompark Road.
What’s YOUR memories of this area?
