Frustratingly, I don’t have a date for this photo, but the occasion is known. It’s the opening of High Blantyre Hall on Cemetery Road. Officials from 8th District Council (Lanark County) gathered for the opening ceremony at Cemetery Walk and some of them are known.

Standing left to right is Ian ?, Mr McInally, J Clark , clerk to the council, Rev John Notman and his wife and Mr Willis?/Murray Tremble?. On the lower row from left to right is Mrs ?, Mr ? (known to be the Architect), Maurice Miller MP, Councillor Winning and wife and Jimmy Swinburne.

I can’t find the year for this, but think it was around 76 or 77. Do you know more, either the missing people or year it opened?
