Old Photos of Motherwell and Surrounding Areas
« on: Tuesday 15 December 09 17:00 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone know where I can find any images of old Motherwell and surrounding areas. I came across a great website for photos a few years ago but I can't find it now, must have been removed.

Thank you  :)

Hello Cheryl.

                   I have such a book that I picked up in a charity shop a wee while ago, called Motherwell Revisited. Price on back is 5.40.

                    Are you looking for any particular area/ time, and I can have a look for you?

Cheers

I was looking for Hamilton Road in particular to see what kind of houses were standing in the past. My ggg grandfather lived in Hamilton Road in 1861 but I've been informed by the Heritage Centre that there aren't many photos of M/Well from then mostly from 1880 onwards and they also said that on their maps for Hamilton Road in 1861 there are no houses which seems a bit odd, anyway could you have a look and see if there is anything on Hamilton Road in your book please, I'd really appreciated it!  :)

Hamilton Road didn't exist then I think it was Clyde Street.

Yeah, Margaret from the Heritage Centre mentioned Clyde Street but it's written as Hamilton Road in all the 1861 Census'

On the 1913 map of Motherwell it shows as Clyde Street
