Maggie Anderson I think my late MIL may be in this pic but her initial was C Anderson not M…..and I also knew Mrs McCaskie but I don’t see her here
Fiona McCaskie Maggie Anderson yes she is. Did you know her ?
Fiona McCaskie Thats a shame, unfortunately it happens when your life moves on x

Betty McLean Fiona I went to High Blantyre school with Barbara McCaskie.
Carole Mackie Rickard Which one is Mrs M Mackie? I’m thinking it might be my Mum, but don’t recognise her if it is!
Carole Mackie Rickard Pamela McKeown no my mums hair was red, though my aunt Margaret wore glasses like that x
Valerie Laird Hi Carole Yes I definitely think it’s your mum with the shopping basket next to her legs. The first time I ever saw her was at the end of 1967 and her hair style was a little different then but I’m sure it’s her. Xxx
Carole Mackie Rickard I’ve just called my Aunt Margaret and it’s definitely them. The lady who submitted the photo is a relative of hers 😀 xx
