1932 St Joseph’s School

How about this wonderful school photo with Blantyre kids! Incredibly, this is a school photo from St Joseph’s School, around 1932 or 1933. Just after the Great Depression, this was a full 6 or 7 years before the outbreak of WW2.

Mary (McCue) Meaux shared the photo from her family collection. She told me, “Near bottom left in bright white shirt is my brother James McCue and his twin sister Cathie – children of Neilly McCue and Mary (McCann) McCue “

Many of the boys are wearing little scarves. It’s not gone unnoticed that many of the girls have fashionable haircuts, the short, bobbed, fringed hair so fashionable for girls in the 1920’s and 30’s. There’s not many wee happy faces in this picture.
