Hamiltons (Long Distance) Transport

Bob Rust from England has emailed me with the following query....Can anyone help?

I worked for the London end of Hamilton's (Long Distance) Transport of Cambuslang. Desperately trying to recall the address of its yard and warehouse to tell a friend from Glasgow.
All I remember is a big red brick building behind what could be a bombed site on the right coming from Hamilton. The old governor Willie Hamilton was supposed to be well known in the area.

Thanks in advance

Bob Rust

Re: Hamiltons (Long Distance) Transport

Hamilton's Transport was in Sommerville Street next to the hoover in Cambuslang

My dad Pete McKenna worked there and so did Eddie O'Farrell and John O'Farrell.
