My, how we’ve changed. Check out this photo of Gordonton Village from the 1970s, sent in by the inimitable Perry Rice from Hamilton Central Libraries.
This is looking at where The Mandarin Tree and Global Veterinary Services now reside. I’m unreliably informed that the building on the right may have been a butcher’s shop at one stage.
Look how short that palm tree is.
Don’t suppose anyone recognises any of the kids hooning about on their bikes?
And here’s the Cenotaph, with the old Gordonton hall behind. If anyone wants to share their memories please do get in touch!
