James Brown, who lives at Calderside House, High Blantyre shared this great photo.
Pictured likely in the early 1960’s is Sydes Brae, looking down the hill towards Blantyre. On the left is the entrance to Newhouse, to the right would now be the field below the Crematorium.
In the photo, you’ll see former Dixon’s Bing still intact, with its steep sides. Beyond that you’ll see the Kirkton Housing Estate, which would have been still relatively new then.
Do you have memories of this area?
