Continuing our lockdown quiz with this latest photo. Where in Blantyre is this? Here’s a clue. It’s not a house. Answer will be revealed tonight.
** Update. This is the Telephone Exchange at Forrest Street. Built in 1958, it replaced the older telephone exchange across Glasgow Road at Herbertson Street.
