Sandyhills Tower Blocks - Photo request!

Hi all,

I hope I'm posting this in the correct area of the forum!

I'm looking for old photos of the four tower blocks in Sandyhills, in the East End of Glasgow. They were constructed in 1968, I believe. I'm particularly on the lookout for photos taken during (or shortly after) the construction of the towers.

So far, I've only been able to find one construction photo, I'll try to attach it.

Thanks in advance, all the best!

That is a great photo.

Unfortunately the only photos I have of the flats are from more recent times. About 2009

Hi all,

found another photo today, of the Sandyhills High Flats, pre-cladding. Does anyone else have any photos of these blocks?

Thanks!

I have some modern pics of the flats but can I ask why you want them ?

Yeah of course! I've been putting together a photo gallery for the community centre at the Sandyhills Tower Blocks. They have a new waiting room at 60 Block, which I'm trying to get some photos together for, to give residents an insight into the history of the blocks and the area.
