1948 Stonefield Public Park

1948 Blantyre Park

1948. World War 2 had ended a few years previous and people were full of hope for an emerging, better future. Rationing still continued but it didn’t stop new parents enjoying the simple things in life, like taking their wee ones to the public park on a sunny day.

Baby Elizabeth Weaver is pictured here in 1948 in a well kept public park. The former boating pond looks in immaculate condition. You can see the houses of Woodburn Avenue in the background left. Do you have memories of playing near the boating pond?

Thanks to Elizabeth for sharing.
