1937 Blantyre Ferme Colliery

Pictured here in 1937, is Blantyre ferme Colliery 3. In these excellent, clear photos, miners stand for the camera, groups of people at the colliery offices stand outside, with a boy in the foreground on the left. It makes me wonder how many of these people lived nearby at Fin Me Oot / Caldervale?

Thanks to Alex Rochead who took time to scan in the original photo at such good resolution.
