1920’s Main Street

1925 Main Street Hb

This charming scene is High Blantyre Main Street in the 1920’s. Children play near the kerbline outside the former Apothecary (chemist). Looking eastwards, some of the houses at the back are still there today.

The trees on the left would now be where family shopper is. The tenement on the left is no longer there today, with exception of a small lower part of it (former Bill Hollands Electrical shop).

This is a time before any busy traffic, the whole scene now looking really different.
