Main Street, Biggar

This is a nice view of the Main Street in Biggar. The date of this photograph would be the early 1900`s. Biggar then was a reasonably well off community. None of the children are going around barefoot. In the background is the Clydesdale Hotel, Biggar. It proudly announces that it has a garage and that petrol was stocked there. Note the street light, gas for this would be provided by Biggar Gas Works.
