The Brannans, Late 1960s

Pictured here is Tommy Brannan and possibly his sister, Mary in the late 60’s at Jackson Street, Blantyre. The Brannans were drivers for the Doonin business. Gary Doonin told me, “The 2 Brannan brothers were my dads pals ,Mick and Rab ,and drove for years with my dad as did wee Tommy Brannan (rabs son) . Mick and Rab’s older brother Thomas, died in the Spanish civil war and his name on monument down at the Welfare . My dad had big involvement in the monument getting erected in 2009.”

Thanks to Gary Doonin for sharing these photos.
