Sign of the Times

How strange this photo looks. Back in 2011, this photo was taken from Glasgow Road by local man Jim Brown.

The more observant of you will notice that there’s something strange going on here, with the sign clearly saying “David Livingstone Memorial Primary School”, yet the school is most definitely St Joseph’s Primary School!

Of course, this was just a temporary arrangement throughout 2011, when the new David Livingstone Primary School was being constructed. The children of “Livvies” moved into the old, unused building at St Josephs, which sat beside the new St Josephs School. The arrangement worked fairly well but would have raised a few eyebrows to anybody coming back or visiting Blantyre and looking at that sign!
