1910 Station Road, Blantyre

1920-station-road-wm

Taking you towards the Village now, this time in 1910 and Station Road. At a time before homes were built on the right hand side, a time before vehicles, you can see how rural the street was, although there is still something familiar about it all.

A horse and cart and few pedestrians are the only things in the street, the villas on the left signifying a desirable area, with easy access for commuting. One of the villas on the left was demolished to make way for a relatively modern bungalow. The railings on the left , now the entrance to Park Lane and of course the trees on the right, with the exception of one, no longer there.
