1976 Playing in my garden

Our family is so lucky to have many hours of cine footage of when we were little. My dad loved his 1970’s cine camera. Sorting through it all, I found this little hidden, treasured gem.

It’s Summer 1976 (a hot summer!), and I’m 5 years old, the same age as my daughter is now. Out in the back garden at 10 Stonefield Crescent, High Blantyre. I’m playing outside with my sister Joanne. A time when kids went OUTSIDE to play, long before gadgets, video games. A time before my brother and other sister too!

Let me briefly take you back to innocence, to 1976 Blantyre…….
