As days go, today’s been pretty productive. Got some words written up about David Livingsone’s visit back to Blantyre, shopping, down Clydeside buying plants, back home gardening and grass cut. However, I did stop for a moment, when I had TWO visitors today.
Blantyre Project readers John Dunsmore (wee Yanni) and his pal, Sanny McVicar dropped by my home for a chat and to show me some old photos. I’ll be showing you those in due course. I’ll always have time for anybody who ever drops by to chat about Blantyre.
Sanny, kindly left several film reels, which he assures me are moving images of Blantyre from the 1950’s and 60’s. All being well, and without presuming, I hope to use this month’s book sales to fund the transferral of these old films into electronic format, to put up here to show you all!
It was a flying visit, but I did manage to get a great photo of the two gents. Thank you kindly and I promise the kettle will be on for you both next time!
