Well, its finally happened! The holy grail of Blantyre photos, well, certainly in terms of what people keep asking me to see. Ladies and gents, here’s the small, oval pool at Stonefield Public Park!
This 1967 picture is courtesy of Blantyre Project reader Lorraine Adair. The small pool was located near the Station Road entrance and is fondly remembered by many Blantyre people when they were small children, in use right up until 1980 or so. It was painted light blue although the water could often by a lot darker!
Lorraine told me, “This is me sitting in the paddling pool. With my sister Ann standing beside me and my brother Robert behind me.”
