1960’s Blantyre Co-op Carpet Dept

Today’s photos we return to the 1960’s and pictured are two Blantyre Co-Op workers. David Mackie stands with stick to batten down the dust on the carpets being sold at the Carpet Department at Low Blantyre.

Colleague Alex Crawford leans against one of the “interesting” 1960’s carpets on the large elevated rolls. (Browns, oranges, beiges and combinations of those, certainly the ‘fashion of the time’).

Today, this space is now occupied by Glen Travel on Glasgow Road.
