1957 William Gardner & Son, William Lightbody

Pictured from left to right in 1957. Blantyre men, William Gardner, William Lightbody Gardner (snr) and William L Gardner son of first left. Each of these men lived in Blantyre.

This looks like a Studio photo. Did you know the Gardner or Lightbody family? Can you tell us more about these men, who look so proud to be in this photo.

  1. William Gardner (first left) is my grandfather, who I remember very well although he died when I was little. He was austere but kind. William on the right “Willy” is my uncle – I never met him or his family but they emigrated to the USA and I believe he was a test driver for an American car manufacturer. Missing in the photo are two other younger sons, David (my father, a baker) and Archibald “Archie”, both no longer alive. I think there was also a daughter but we were not a very close family and I rarely met them. I never met my great grandfather but I remember my dad telling me that there was a Lightbody connection. I have very fond memories of Blantyre as a child. I am the youngest of David’s five sons – all thankfully still alive. Thank you to whoever posted the photo!
