Blantyre Railway Station, 1920s

Shared here by Rob Gordon, the brother of late Blantyre historian Neil Gordon, this photo is of Blantyre Station, I think taken in the 1920s. The platforms and station were upgraded in 1899 for the turn of the century, the buildings then renovated into this shown configuration. The canopy of the ticket offices protruding out over the platforms to the railway lines themselves. No overhead lines of course, trains powered by steam, coal and diesel in those days.
