Sharon Doonin (nee Morrison) kindly shared this photo of her sitting in Stonefield Public Park, Low Blantyre in Springtime 1975. Pictured alongside her is a rare picture of the empty boating pond (usually drained and cleaned out ahead of summer).
In the background are the back of the buildings along Glasgow Road. Greenside Street is just out the picture to the left. Behind the buildings in the background is Glasgow Road, at the junction of Victoria Street to the right.
Sharons picture is good confirmation that sometime between 1969 and 1975, the beautiful rose gardens and wooden trellis frames of previous decades in the park, had suddenly gone.
Whats your memories of this area and the buildings at the back?
