Every now and again some little gems arrive into Blantyre Project. Like this amazingly clear photo of Calder Street School pupils, taken in 1936.
Shared here by former local School teacher, Morag Glen, via Blantyre Heritage Group, this is a great photo, not only for its detail, but because almost all the names are known! That makes for interesting viewing on this page, for these children are all Blantyre pupils and I’m sure many readers will be related to them.
These children would have been born in 1929 or 1930 or so. I’ve zoomed in on sections of the children and marked up almost all of their names. It would be great to identify the couple of missing names and even better to hear from anybody who spots their parents or siblings, grandparents, aunts or uncles!
