Take a trip down Memory Lane
Reader finds collection of old Rutherglen snaps
Everyone loves a trip down Memory Lane.
And Ruglonians are especially proud of thet town’s history and heritage.
That is why photos of Rutherglen from thet past are always so popular, whether it is in the paper or online.
And that is also why Reformer reader Willie Anderson chose to share his pictures with the Reformer.
Willie came across a pile of old photos and has been posting them on the Auld Rutherglen Facebook page, much to the delight of users.
He now wants Reformer readers to
enjoy them. The pictures depict various parts of Rutherglen from a variety of eras, although there is a focus around the Main Street.
We’ll share more of Willie’s images in future editions of the paper, so make sure you look out for them.
For more history, turn to our weekly Memory Lane feature on page 35.
