1980 Spar at Kirkland Place

The end of era for this building at High Blantyre, when in the early 1980’s it was demolished. Just prior in 1980, photographed here and kindly shared by Willie Mclelland.

Who remembers SPAR and APOLLO TAXIs at Kirkland Place on the north side of Main Street, High Blantyre? The road leading off on the left in Cemetery Road. This is the same building as our recent post about Bernie’s Fish and Chicken Bar. Can you name the middle shops ?

Admittedly, it may now take a middle aged or elderly reader to remember visiting these shops given this photo was taken 43 years ago. What’s your memories of these shops?
