1950 Co-op Gala Day

Blantyre Summer Gala Day 1950. Hosted by the Co-op. Pictured third from the left is Marie Pollock (nee Cornfield). Marie’s daughter Margo shared this photo. A little perfect snapshot in time from almost 70 years ago!

    I loved Gala Day. I was born in 1945 in the prefabs in Station Rd next to David Livingston Memorial we were moved to Devondale Ave about 1956 . Does anyone have any photos of the prefabs or Devondale Avenue from that time. I now live in Australia
