Blantyre 1980’s Video Part 1

Another look at Blantyre through the decades. Time for the 1980’s! This video is slightly longer than previous films at just over 4 minutes (…well there was a lot to cover in the 80s!)

Music is by “Fruits of Passion”, a local band and the sound is definitely modern. Music had certainly changed. We look back to a time mostly before games consoles, when kids played outside in amongst buildings now no longer here. Glasgow Road was changing fast too. New shopping centre, sports centre and nearby expressway.

At the risk of making everybody feel old, I have to remind myself, this is all from 29 – 39 years ago! Enjoy
