Visiting Santa, 1980

Screenshot 2019-07-17 at 00.22.57Sorry about the unseasonal post, but I’m still exploring 1980 and thought this photo was worth sharing. Are you pictured? Know anybody?

It’s December 1980, the photo taken at Blantyre Community Centre on Glasgow Road. Santa was handing out presents at the playgroup’s grotto. 350 children were delighted to receive a present from Santa , raising over £500 towards the next years activities.  The wee lass on the left may have not got what present she was expecting though. There were tears by the looks of it!
