Blantyre Public School, 1939

Here’s a brilliant photo recently shared to this page. It’s 1939, before the outbreak of WW2 and these Blantyre children are pupils of Blantyre Public School.

I’ve zoomed in on the children to see their expressions. These Blantyre children, if alive today would be around 86 or 87 years old. A long shot indeed for anybody to be named or recognised, but these kids may very well be some of your parents or grandparents!
