Glasgow Road, 2000

Continuing a look around Blantyre during the Millennium year in 2000. Next we’re on Glasgow Road, a time before all the dark green uniform shopfronts were created. Clyde Star and the age of the video still very much underway.

I almost forgot the barbers was there. Who remembers Mackintosh Furniture Shop too?
