1950’s Broompark Road

1950’s and a nice new footpath at the corner of Broompark Road and Stonefield Road. This is the back of the current newsagents, which in that era was Dunsmuirs Drapers. Beyond the cross, you can see the Larkfield Bar, located in what is now the Olive Music Lounge’s front carpark. The two storey tenements now gone.

A couple of decades earlier, my grandmother lived above this shop, which then was Danskin’s drapers. My great grandmother used to live in the Greenhorn Cottage, the house out the picture to the right, where you can see their driveway.

I think I prefer how it used to look by comparison to today.
