1960 Jim Nimmo


1961 jim nimmo at HIgh Blantyre1Margaret Lehman Nimmo has sent in this photo of her brother, Jim Nimmo.

Margaret added, “This photo was taken 1960/61ish. It’s my brother who was Scout Master and a trophy won by the High Blantyre Scouts. Unfortunately he cannot remember exactly what the trophy was for, you may even know yourself with so much information on hand about Blantyre’s history. Thanks again for all the interesting articles, I know a lot more about Blantyre now than when I lived there.”

The photo was taken at 125 Kirkton Avenue High Blantyre. There is a pigeon coop in the background in the neighbours yard. Jim is a direct relation of the Nimmos formerly of Auchentibber. It is of no surprise that a member of this family is holding a trophy, given the history in this ancestry line of competitive sportsmanship.

On social media:

George Mackenzie I lived in No.69, would be around 13 when this was taken & was in High Blantyre Scouts when Alec Cook was Scoutmaster (sadly don’t recall Jim). Bill Dorricott might so – Margaret Henry can you ask Bill if he knows Jim & what the trophy might be for?

Margaret Henry Jim now lives in Canada and is married to our cousin Janie McLaughlin. My brother Bill is friends with her on Facebook. Bill might know about the trophy.
