Description:

This is a first-rate collection of pictures with top-notch text written by one of our most experienced authors. The sequence starts at Battlefield with old cottages near the monument, continues past the Free Church, along Millbrae Road and down Overdale Street (where Stenlake Publishing was once based). It then moves on to Cathcart via Sinclair Drive, Ledard Road and other streets, with a quick backtrack to the Victoria Infirmary before continuing past the college and going on to Mount Florida. Queen's Park FC, Hampden Park, Cathkin Park and the ill-fated Third Lanark football team are all covered. The Cathcart material is varied and interesting and includes the flooded Holmlea allotments, Holmlea Road, the Wallace-Scott tailoring institute, the Parish Church, Old Castle Road, the Snuff Mill, the erstwhile castle, Cathcart House (now demolished), Millholm paper mill and some delightful art deco period tea-rooms in Linn Park.
