1980s Blantyre Aerial

This photo was shared recently by Jack Bethel. It’s an aerial photo of Blantyre taken in the early 1980s.

A time before the Technology Park and before housing beside the church. The road snaking through the picture is Hunthill Road, with the old High Blantyre Primary School seen at the bottom left, one of 2 schools in this picture! I’d forgotten that there used to be an entrance into the school directly across from the white gates. The photo was taken high above the Calder.
