Blantyre Engineering Company Dance

On Friday 29th November 1929, the employees of the Blantyre Engineering Company Ltd, held their annual dance in the Masonic Hall on Glasgow Road. Employees were permitted to bring along a partner and judging by the happy faces and attendance, it looks like it was a great night!

Styles were changing. The straight, short bobbed hair of women in the 1920’s giving was to the wavy, longer styles and fashions of the approaching 1930s.

There’s a surprising amount of younger people in this 93 year old photo. I wonder how just many of our parents, grandparents and older relatives are pictured!
