1979 Blantyre Beauties

Two further Blantyre lassies who took part in the 1979 Miss Advertiser competition were Anne Ryce and Yvonne McDade. Their photos appears in the Hamilton Advertiser newspaper back in January 1979 with short descriptions of their interests.

Anne was 18 at the time and told reporters she loved sea fishing.

Yvonne, (pictured with her hands on he hips) liked to watch her 2 favourite football teams, Motherwell and Scotland. Yvonne was 20 at the time working as a clerk in Hamilton and enjoyed disco dancing. Having been to Spain a number of times, she was hoping at the time to soon visit America.

Do you know the ladies?
