Shelley Drive building – Post-Blitz

This photo was discovered by Sam Gibson during a blitz exhibition in Clydebank Library. Sam then forwarded it to OldCHS. It shows the building (which at that time had not yet been opened as a school) surrounded by the devastation caused during the Clydebank Blitz of 13th/14th March 1941. In the background is the “Holy City” destroyed by the bombing. The famous Singer clock also appears on the right of the photo. Photo credit: West Dunbartonshire Council, Clydebank Library.
