David Livingstone Park


1950s DLC Park 1An excellent happy photo of David Livingstone Park. Taken around the mid 20th Century from the Valentine postcard series, it shows a busy park full of happy children (and adults!)

And oh, how busy it is! My favourite, charming thing about this photo is the man on the right in the flat cap, being playfully lifted by two teenagers, up off his feet entirely! A fun pose for the camera.

Gerry Walker Growing up in Blantyre in the 60`s and 70`s the park was always full. No colour telly or computers to keep you indoors. “It`s a nice day, go and get some fresh air” was always ringing in our ears in our house.
