I recently received an email where Blantyre Project reader Muir Wasson, kindly scanned and provided some old photos of Blantyre. Muir wrote, “I was brought up in Blantyre from by birth in 1935 until I left in 1957 and have many memories of that time. We lived first in Morris crescent and then in Monteith place. I have a few photos though most of poor quality. My father Robert Wasson was active in the St John’s Ambulance and the Anderson Church. These are from this time though I can’t be precise as to the exact years.”
The photos rage in date from 1932 to 1939 with some of the people known. Do you recognise anybody else?

This site brings back so many fond memories of people and places of so long ago. Thanks for that, Must keep looking
