Old Photograph Lawn Bowling Green Oatlands Glasgow Scotland


Old photograph of men on the Lawn Bowling Green in Richmond Park in Oatlands, Glasgow, Scotland. Oatlands is an area in the city of Glasgow. It is situated South of the River Clyde. It is part of the Gorbals historic area, and its boundaries are Hutchesontown and the Southern Necropolis cemetery to the West, Polmadie to the South, Shawfield in the town of Rutherglen to the East, and Glasgow Green public park to the North, across the River Clyde. Until the 1990s, the area was characterised by four storey sandstone tenements built at the end of the 19th century and the start of the 20th. A continuous line of tenements faced Richmond Park, opened in 1899, across busy Rutherglen Road, one of Glasgow's main arterial routes.
