Gord Fotheringham has kindly shared these 2 photos from his family collection. From 1955, it features his dad and sister, Anna swimming in the Clyde near Blantyre Weir. You can just about make out the suspension bridge in the background.
Do you have family photos you would like to add to the 8,000 Blantyre photo archive at Blantyre Project? Why not message them over, where I’d be happy to schedule a little post about them.
