Pictured here in the late 1980’s is “strongman” the late Jon Pal Sigmarsson who attended the Blantyre Highland Games. Beside him and the huge ‘pint’ of milk, is Bardykes owner Mr Sandy Wilkie, his home in the background.
The photo, shared recently by Sandy also has the Wilkie’s pickup in the background, a familiar sight for many as it did its milk deliveries.
Sadly, Jon Pall died from a heart attack , a few years later, shockingly aged only 32 in 1993.
Can you remember seeing Wilkie’s deliveries around Blantyre? Perhaps you were a driver or even earlier, a delivery boy?
