The final cine film from Sanny McVicar. This one was filmed in 1966 again in Blantyre. This time in the upper fields, up at the former Basket Farm.
Farmer, Jimmy Shields (or one of his farmhands) milks the cows.
Thank you sincerely to Sanny McVicar for giving us all an insight into his life in the 50s and 60s and for all those special moments we’ve enjoyed this week.
All these cine films have now been uploaded to Youtube for easy playback , with permission.

Jim Cochrane Jimmy Shields with the Bunnet. Tying them up to be milked . Ayrshires.
Jim Cochrane I think the people cleaning the car might be Alex and Sheena McCaskie. It looks like its taken at the front of the agricultural houses that stood beyond the stackyard at basket .
Jim Cochrane my Mum might know better. Alex was her cousin. he worked at Basket i think when he left school and when he got married Jimmy sorted up the house for them.
Maggie Anderson The other man in the film with the cows looks like my brother in law Colin Anderson Is that possible ?
Jim Cochrane Maggie Anderson It really does look like Colin he may have helped at the basket before he moved into the Park . Did he stay next to the primary School with Nancy . Havent seen them for a while.
