Next , a photo sent in with thanks to Stephen Gallagher on 8th November 2014.
Finding out a little more via social media, various people were able to identify the date and the people in the photo. Maureen O’ Connell told me, “It’s the back yard of 64 Farm road Blantyre, the Reynolds residence until a few years ago. My mother Jane Reynolds took this whilst visiting“. Later Jane Reynolds confirmed the photo is 1953 or 1954. From left to right: Charlotte (Lotty), and her daughters Helen and Annie with Catherine Bradley in the middle.
I love these sort of pictures. It captures the clothes and fashions of the day perfectly. Thanks to everybody who pieced together this information.
I’ve sharpened, coloured and repaired this photo below.
