Unemployment in 1970's Clydebank

This wee film highlights the severe unemployment in Clydebank in the early 70's, am now thoroughly depressed after listening to it but the images are a good record of what the town looked like back then, when I was still at school. Hard to listen to, makes me realise just how lucky I was to leave school in '73 and get a job in Singers Offices within a couple of weeks...and have been in employment ever since. Counting my blessings...

Sad, been there done that and lived through these times, in Clydebank.

hard to believe that forty years on the the more things change the more they stay the same. Forum Index -> The Greater Glasgow Area
