1981 Glasgow Road Junctions

Today’s photos, although a little colour faded are from 1981. Almost 40 years ago, the junctions of Forrest Street and John Street are photographed as part of the evolving, changing scene that year in Glasgow Road, Blantyre.

A yellow van approaches the junction of Forrest Street, the caravan now sitting where Andy’s Tyres now is. Further along westwards is John Street junction, a more familiar scene. The top end of John Street had recently been realigned coming out at a new roundabout, abandoning the previous John Street junction further along beside the tenement.

Another wee look at how things used to be….
