Old Cumbernauld with Condorrat and Castlecary

Author : Guthrie Hutton
ISBN : 9781840334029
Cover : paperback
Price : £11.95

Guthrie Hutton, the seasoned Stenlake Publishing author, strolls through the years from the villages’ small beginnings and onward to their transformation into a vibrant new town, a result of plans to ease overpopulation in Glasgow. It includes striking early images such as the Main Street in Cumbernauld village in 1927 and a rare photograph of the lost village of South Muirhead, which was demolished to make way for the new town. Also featured is the notorious Town Centre mega structure in Cumbernauld, built in 1968 and disliked ever since. This is a great guide for anyone interested in the history and development of the area throughout the 20th century, and is both informative and visually impressive while retaining a simplicity that allows you to enjoy the title without being weighed down by too many facts and figures.
