1973 Jedburgh Street

James D Brown of Calderside House kindly shared this photo adding, “This is George Brown (my father), Mary Brown (mother), Christine Brown (sister) leaning on my car, taken from the front door at 27 Jedburgh Street, Blantyre.”

The car and clothes give away the era, and the houses whilst familiar to what they look like today, look relatively new. Do you have a photo of a Blantyre house, street or perhaps something familiar with family in it? Feel free to share here on Blantyre Project.

Frances Mitchell I called the lady in the picture my Nana and the gentleman my Uncle George. We live next door in no25.
Jimmy Whelan I knew the family very well especially Geordie as most of my generation will recollect as he had a lock up at the bottom of Jedburgh St. And was always dabbling with cars or motorcycles.
Jimmy Whelan I can remember him buying a Cadillac and extending the lock up doors to accommodate it and also he adapted his crash helmet when he rode his BSA Bantam 950cc and looked like a super hero as it had a bit from the forehead to the chin and painted metallic green.

Jim Brown George used to take an old p(robably 250cc) motorbike up the bing and let us all have a scramble πŸ™‚Remember the Viking like helmet too Jimmy.

Jimmy Whelan Jim Brown many a Sunday evening I dogged Mass in that lock up.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
