1959 – 60 St Blanes Primary School


Pictured here in 1959/60 school year are the Blantyre pupils of St Blanes Primary School. The school had only recently opened a couple of years earlier and this clear, good quality photo has been shared by Patrick Irwin.

I’ve zoomed in on all the pupils as I’m positive many of these people will still be in Blantyre, perhaps born in the early 1950s. If you know anybody, please feel free to tag or comment.
