Thank you to Gail Duncan, for sharing these photos. The date is 1971, the location, Low Blantyre Public Park at Stonefield. These Gala day photos show Gail’s aunt being crowned Gala Queen. Gail told me, “My aunts name at the time was Joan hunter and she was Blantyre YMCA gala queen the newspaper one shows her being crowned by the previous years queen Fiona Scott.”
Gail’s family must have luck on their side for this privileged position. Gail’s daughter Leah , was randomly chosen in June 2015, to become the 2015 Gala Day Queen!
