Location: Gartsherrie Road, Coatbridge.

This was originally the social club for Baird's Scottish Steel Works, hence the wording on the memorial.

The memorial is quite a considerable size so it is difficult to get a complete picture of it - it almost extends into the ceiling!

I have edited these photos in photobucket but somehow two of the panel photos are still side-on.

I cannot find the pictures that are missing. What back up does the site have here to try and trace/find the missing ones?

They would have been in your photobucket album. If they are no longer there then you have deleted them. We don't currently maintain backups of others photographs.

I think, perhaps, another visit to the bowling club is required this time with a proper camera!
