GOLDEN DAYS in Airdrie

 

Photographs by Sam McCabe of Coatbridge
 

This collection of photographs date back to 1971 when Airdrie celebrated its 150th anniversary of becoming a burgh.

 

The who
le town got in on the fun with hundreds of people dressing up for the occasion.

A series of events were held to mark the Act of Par
liament in 1821 which declared Airdrle a Burgh. .

 

In 1971 Airdrie celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Burgh

Our first picture shows 'soldiers' in period costume marching along Clark Street past the old community centre

while a Scots Guard is also pictured in his bearskin hat.

The old
Lanarkshire Fire Brigade is pictured with on
e of its appliances in
Graham Street
outside Grants

 Two of the younger Airdrieonians are pictured in their mini-skirts drawing an astonished glance from an elderly passer-by.
