Blantyre history

Aitkenhead's SlaughterhouseThe Aitkenhead Slaughterhouse, off John Street, used for butchering horses and cattle from the farms in the local area. Known locally as ‘The Killing Hoose.’

I understand that the building was later used, in the early 50’s, as The School of Building, Cambuslang. From its earliest years, strongly supported by local employers and school leavers, the School of Building was a success.  The College’s popularity soon meant that the original premises at Janebank were unable to cope with the increasing demand.  In 1952, additional premises were acquired at John Street, Blantyre, which provided training mainly in trowel crafts and carpentry and joinery.
