Lockdown Quiz 1: Where is this?


This week and next we’re hosting a little daily quiz. Asking, “Where Am I in Blantyre?” Some photos will be fairly recent, others taken a decade or more ago. The answers are known and will be revealed each evening. Here’s hoping you all take part in the comments. Today’s picture is a building  constructed in the 1800’s, but where?!

With thanks to my fellow history colleague Gordon Cook for the photos in this quiz.

Carol McCormack Old Apollo bar in high Blantyre walked past it last week can’t believe it’s still there in such a state
Scott Moore Back of the Apollo, the red door took you into the cellar. My wee Grampa was the cellar man for over 20 years.
