On 12th November, Ian Dobson contacted me , sending in this photo from 1959. He told me, “The man with the greyhound is my dad’s father William Dobson. Not sure which track but he and my dad had greyhounds almost all their life. My dad used to take me too the dogs in Blantyre when I was younger.
My grandpa was well known in Blantyre. Walked everywhere. Everybody knew him he lived in wheatland avenue. Always had greyhounds. As you can see in the photo he was quite successful. I only knew he went to Blantyre dogs but might have travelled around. Used to cook us our lunch on the fire. Lol. Loved his bingo in the welfare too.“
