Days gone by – Soroba Road

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Iain Mac­don­ald from Al­bany Street in Oban sent this photo. Iain said: ‘Dur­ing the early- to mid-1980s (I may be out with the date), the steeple on the par­ish church needed re­pairs. I was ac­quainted with the mem­bers of the scaf­fold­ing com­pany who were work­ing there and was al­lowed to climb to the top to take photos. This pic­ture shows Soroba Road look­ing south to­wards Oban High School. It pre- dates the build­ing of the Co- op as the me­mo­rial works on the cor­ner of Soroba Lane can be seen. There’s no Lorn Med­i­cal Cen­tre and the old high school build­ing can be seen at the top. This area of Oban has seen many changes over the years since.’
