This fantastic happy photo is a 1950’s, wedding taking place at Blantyre Old Parish Church. Pictured outside the main door of the church, it would appear the guides are attending, so perhaps a Guide officer being married?
The wedding is unknown , so if you recognise the people or are able to confirm the date, then please do get in touch.
In the background is Smithycroft, a former building built in 1777 at Craigmuir Road. The cottage was also known as Craigmuir Cottage, whitewashed and well kept. It was demolished a decade or so later.
