ALMADA STREET & BOTHWELL ROAD NOW AND THEN.

Almada & Bothwell Road Lucy MacKinnon.

Looking back to May 1997 this picture was taken at the junction between Almada Street & Bothwell Road. The old gatekeepers house that was situated at the entrance of the Furlongs was carefully taken down brick by brick and relocated to Muir Street.

Most of you will also remember the public toilets on Bothwell Road that were closed down due to frequent visitors at night! And by May 1997 the old Hamilton Bus Depo was gone.

Douglas Park snapped up the vacant land and built a fancy car sales room selling luxury cars.
