Rev George Dickson

Andy Dickson shared this photo of his late Uncle, the Rev George Dickson.

George was a former minister in Blantyre’s Burleigh Church at Glasgow Road, passing away in 1976. He is fondly remembered by many readers of this page.

Andy told me, “When we were young, my sister and I always received books from Uncle George as presents for birthdays and Christmas. When the package arrived we could always tell who it was from by the writing! And the books were always inscribed.”

Moira Macfarlane I remember getting my prize for good attendance,it was written by the wonderful Fanny Crosby.
Emma Reilly Where was this church? It looks very like David Livingstone from what I can see in the pic.
