Window to the Past: Barrhead Road

editorial image

These young shavers are standing on Barrhead Road.

The picture is looking west towards the tenements of Ashview Terrace and the Co-operative building.

To the right of the picture is a field where, in 1932, the Western SMT bus depot would be built.

Ashview Terrace was so-named because it was built on a road lined by ash trees.
