In 1915 the County Bar owned by W S Angus was broken into, the thieves smashed a plate glass window to gain access. The thugs Alexander Strachan and Joseph Marton, labourers, were both charged with breaking into the pub, stealing 3 bottles of whisky and 50 cheroots. They were both sentenced to three months imprisonment with hard labour.
Do you remember this old pub or any other pub in Cambuslang? If so please leave a comment.
