Superb stuff, many memories there for me as I was born and brought up in the Monklands.

Here is one from me


vol 06 14 band bank street by d9009alycidon, on Flickr

This is Bank street looking East towards the Caledonian Railway Bridge. Looks unfamiliar?? THat is because it was taken before 1900, when the Caledonian railway rebuilt and enlarged the station and built new bridges over the canaland road.  (Photograph copyright Graham Gartshore)

Took a donner around Coatbrig the other day. A wealth of gems hidden around the place. The cream meringues in Christie's bakers on the High Street are excellent.
Sheepford Railway Viaduct


Looks like the view from my bedroom window when I was a kid, brought up in Sikeside. Can remember the Monkland Canal as it was less than 100 yards from our back door. Think it was eventually drained in the mid 70's.

Municipal Buildings


This was Coatbridge High School. It had a load of sh!te extensions. Fortunately, as at Uddingston, they kept the original building.


Former Lamberton Engine Works


Former Coatbridge Central Station Building


I went to London in 1982 for a job interview, got the train home from London Euston and it stopped at Coatbridge Central. Also remember catching the train from there to Inverness/Aviemore in the late 70's.
