These two photos were taken in May 1976. Pictured from the top of the former Blantyreferme Bing is the demolished brickworks and colliery site.

You can see Blantyreferme Road on the left and the road tunnel under the railway line. This whole area in the foreground is now levelled and covered in young woodland.

Turning the camera around and looking North eastwards, the level base of the colliery buildings and former bathhouse can be seen, the Clyde just out the picture to the right.
