Here’s local lady Audrey Smith, pictured here in the 1970s. Well known, respected and popular, Audrey was the town’s top florist. When this picture was taken she had helped scores of local women arrange flowers for a fantastic flower display to raised money for restoring the Old Parish Church Rose window.
Based from her shop at Broompark Road, Audrey’s business bloomed. Her husband ran the adjacent garage.
I was once told, if you were on holiday abroad in that decade and met anybody who knew something about Blantyre, you would be asked “Do you know Audrey Smith?”
Do you remember Audrey or can tell me more?
