Continuing a look at all the brand new photos recently shared to Blantyre Project. This time, a wonderful photo of James Nimmo, sent in by Jane Davies, who added, “This is James Nimmo, at the Quoiting Green. Sorry, I don’t know the date.”
Having researched this family previously, I knew this to be James Nimmo Senior, an accomplished player at the Quoiting Green in Auchentibber. His son was also a star player around the time this photo was taken, which I believe to be the late 1920’s. James eventually moved to Auchinraith Road and was married to Jane Currie Nimmo. Both James and Jane were born in 1869.
