1978 Twins at the Gala Day

1978 Twins at the Gala Day wmTwins, Mary Rose and Janice McGranaghan (aged 8) are pictured here about to tuck into a lunch provided by the Miner’s Welfare for children attending the Gala Day.

It’s Saturday 26th August 1978 and the Miner’s Welfare Gala had been resurrected that year after an absence of 17 years, although of course the main Blantyre galas still took place during that time in the Public Park.

The girls were at David Livingstone Centre grounds and along with hundreds of other kids, enjoyed all the festivities that day. Do you know the twins?
