Blantyre Works Mills

from the Bothwell side-Colorized

Slipping back 100 years or so again with this next photograph. The latest black and white photo to be coloured for Blantyre Project. This was taken from the Bothwell side of the River Clyde and looks across to Blantyre and to Shuttle Row.

This is the site of the former Blantyre Works Mills in the Village. The distinctive curve of the weir in the foreground and the demolished remains of the mills, taken down brick by brick in 1903.
