Wishaw Prefabs - a Memory of Wishaw.

Most of my friends at Wishaw Academy in the 1950's lived in the prefabs; Gordon "carrots" Mcallister, Johnny Davidson, Billy Ffyfe, Jim Glover, I have forgot all the other names. We all went on to Wishaw Central School, we spotted trains at Wishaw South and Central stations, explored the area ie. Wishaw Glen Road, the old gatehouse, mine and watermill - all now gone. All the things we liked also gone, tramcars, steam locos, steam ships on the Clyde and interesting old road vehicles.i only ever see Johnny Davidson who lives near my house in Carluke, the odd old friend turns up in Wishaw on occassion, I'd like to meet them all again.
