This copy of the Blantyre Gazette belonged to my grandmother. Saturday 26th March 1938. Blantyre Parish Church Sunday school put on a lavish Pageant. The children and young adults put on a production in the Miner’s Welfare with 23 acts and scenes from Blantyre’s history.
I have a detailed account of each scene, which commenced with this rather scary looking scene announcing the arrival of Blantyre’s Priors. I like that idea, of having a play or pageant explaining in scenes, all the important parts of Blantyre’s history.
