Subject Place South Bridge St/Old Grangemouth/Grangemouth area
Subject Notes With the expansion of the port, this area was demolished in the 1960s and 1970s although the block on the left with clock tower and Queen's Hotel outlived for a time the rest of the Old Town. The old town hall was taken over by the local newspaper. Timber formed a large share of the port's traffic. The bascule bridge had to be replaced as lorries could not use it.
