FinmeOot Aerial 1941

A great aerial photo taken in 1941. From above Blantyreferme, this photo looks over to “Finmeoot”, Caldervale. The former mining community is no longer there. The railway line to Glasgow from Blantyre can be seen cutting across the middle of the picture. The road leading over to Newton in the foreground.
