Another photo from Jim Cochrane’s grans collection. Jim’s Aunt Christina Main is on the right of this photo taken around 1930. She is standing at the gate of a large house near Little Udston Farm lived in by the Nicholson Family. She was with her friend May Nicholson (pictured on the left).
Christina was born in Blantyre on 10th June 1909 at Barnhill and lived until she was almost 91. Her brother Robert Main was born on the 29th May 1910 but died at only 8 months old on 25 Jan 1911.
