Staying with the same area of Auchinraith Road as yesterday’s photo, here’s another photo of Beatons, this time from 1992.
Taken some 29 years ago by Gordon Cook, this was taken from around the shop area looking across to the edge of the timber houses. This was the site of the former refuse tip.
The first incinerator was built down the bottom of John Street under the other side of the railway tunnel, then the council built a new one on the grounds of the old colliery here on Auchinraith Road.
Who can remember this and what more can you tell me about Beatons?
