Heather McKnight-Wendt, a Blantyre Project reader living in Germany shared these photos. The little girl is her gran around 1913, Margaret McKnight neé Lees who was nicknamed “Meg.” The second photo is of Elisabeth Lees who was attending her daughter Meg’s wedding in 1945. Finally, in the purple dress, grown up Margaret “Meg” McKnight (neé Lees) at a wedding in 1973.
Margaret Stein Lees was born on 15th May 1911 at 29 Merry’s Rows and I’m quite sure she is pictured as an infant here at former Merry’s Rows, the whitewashed stone a giveway. She was the daughter of William Lees, a coal miner and Elizabeth Smith Graham a couple married on Hogmanay 1908 in Blantyre.
