What a lot of character this photo has. Pictured around 1905 are 4 children and possibly their nanny at the gates to the Greenhall Estate. The pillars and wall are still there today at the top of the hill. I noticed when i zoomed in on this photo that the old lady is possibly holding an infant, or perhaps just holding on to her shopping tightly?
The identity of the children are unknown, but finely dressed, they may be out a walk from one of the grander homes in Blantyre.
The Photograph was captured by early part time photographer David Ritchie of Main Street, High Blantyre.
