John Patrick Photos


Norma Marr lives in Calgary, Canada but her family came from Blantyre. She emailed me recently saying, “Here are three photos of my grandfather – one in uniform, one professional portrait and one family shot of him, my grandmother, mom and aunt.” Her grandfather was John Patrick who lived at Auchentibber. John was a barman at JB Struthers Auchentibber Inn, which closed in the 1930s.

Norma Lawrence Marr Just amazing to see these old photos with colour — my grandfather was such a handsome man and I so wish that I could have known him. Thanks Paul for this unexpected but lovely surprise — much appreciated!
