Did anyone on here used to live on Kelvin Flats?

If so how did you find it?

do you have a date for this picture?

I'm interested in Ebeneezer Elliott's house - bottom right hand corner just shows it. I live there now and am trying to piece together its history, this might help

Be good to hear about your research - maybe we can help?

I loved living on Kelvin. I loved it so much that 25 years on, I've written a book of poetry and prose about it for my MA dissertation. I lived on Woollen Walk on the section that faced what is now the Tesco, almost directly above the Housing Office. When I first moved onto the flats, the tesco car park was still covered in rubble. Had a brilliant time on the flats. Fantastic people, amazing community spirit and a sense of belonging that I've never felt anywhere else. I'm also one of those peculiar people who loves Brutalist Arcitecture, so loved living there for the aesthetics, too.
