I,ll tell you what I,ll do jimbo. I,ll compare our galleries. Yours very little of scotland a couple from the usual Edinburgh day tripper sights. Glasgow the same, Hamilton the same, but the ones of the High Blantyre district are interesting cause nobody goes anywhere near there to sight see. Now check mine And see how near you get to England never mind Liverpool. LOL cheers scally from glasgow but not a Keelie

It's no High Blantyre Scally - it's Burnbank. Where I lived for about 15 years. High Blantyre is a dangerous place for a 'Bankie' from the 'Jungle'. The tourist shots are recent tourist outings from Ingland. Hamilton has changed and Glasgow too since I escaped. I married an Inglish lassie to get my green card. Edinburgh pix were when I was sent on a job.

I knew it was,na Blantyre Jimbo. juet to give you a wee stir:D Most of the old industrial Towns of west central Scotland are rapidly declining, still miss the sight of Ravenscraig,s Towers when coming home up the 74. Was planning to ask you to pronounce Chatlerue. but you,ve passed the test.LOL cheers scally

This is the reason I took the photos in the first place. We are making a record of our surroundings for future generations and ourselves to look at. It still surprises me when I nip back up to Hamilton and see the changes. It's high time Google earth updated its satellite pictures though - blurred - was the camera pished? :) Wish I had a digital camera when I first came doon here.

Google earth is very slowly up dating its map, but I,ve got family in Coatbridge and Carradale, that is mapped like Burnbank although last year they fully mapped Campbeltown, and quite a few areas are not updated to changes, Jim. I,ve got a blue car in my drive way, that I sold 2 years ago.LOL. and changes in Hamilton got so drastic a few years ago that a mate of mine who followed Morten (poor soul) went there to seem them play, to find that the ground was closed and they had moved miles away to share a Ground. The only fault I find with Digital is that it is so cheap to take and store that it has got to the point my wife tells me not to take it with me on holiday. she is sick of the sight of it,:D cheers scally

I went to Coatbridge Tech College 1977-1981 when I done my apprenticeship with the pit. The mining classes were at the rear in old wooden buildings where the dining hall was. Ma missus isn't to keen on ma camera either. I view my time down here as an extended holiday so I regularly take my camera out with me. Went to Bolsover this morning but didn't get very many good shots - when I do i'll post them - awrabest - Jim

I know your alma matter building Jim, my son married a Coatbridge girl, and they have 5 children 1......12yrs.Like everywhere else this town has little work, but built some lovely housing Estates on old industrial land,it must still be quite producive, makes Birthdays and Christmases very interesting,LOL cheers scally
