Motherwell by Helen Moir
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Using a collection of over 200 photographs, largely garnished from local residents, the author, Helen Moir, has compiled a volume that creates a fascinating portrait of Motherwell and its social history. These old photographs are sure to evoke strong memories for many and show newcomers and the younger generation how things used to be in Motherwell. The reader will encounter street scenes and people from the last century, with pubs, cinemas and shops that are long gone. Motherwell has often been referred to as the 'Steel Town', and this book provides a unique insight into the area's proud industrial heritage of steel, mining and weaving. Images that are distinctly Motherwell, such as the Cross, Ravenscraig and Dalzell Steel Works, and Skelly's Garage, are featured throughout the book, all supported by finely detailed captions. This selection, which includes many previously unpublished photographs, pays tribute to the way Motherwell has grown over the years. It is certain to interest anyone who has fond memories of this well-loved town, while providing a tantalising glimpse into the recent past for those who are less well acquainted with the Motherwell of yesteryear.
