Today, we’re taking you back to 1920’s High Blantyre. Pictured on Craigmuir Road is a former building called Smithycroft, which was constructed in 1777. The front part of this building as pictured, opened out on to Craigmuir Road facing over to Blantyre Old Parish Church. The rear, faced on to High Blantyre Railway Station. Walking down the hill, a man heads to the junction of Craigmuir Road and Hamilton Road. Today, this area has modern homes.
