First 3 cylinder Rolls Royce

Another bite sized chunk of Blantyre History

Ness's School Side ViewAH! Ness’s School Margaret, where your Grandad John Morton was the school janitor. He must have loved his job spending a lot of years there and how lucky he was to see all of those thousands of junior (5-10 years) faces over the years. I am sure he has to be remembered on many occasions when these now Granddads and Grandmothers think back to their school days, just like I do.

As I mentioned in one of my previous write up’s, the name Ness’s was taken from the first headmaster to run the school John Ness. John and his wife Mary came from Glasgow to Blantyre to run the school at the Workers Village prior to moving to the new school and they raised a family there. John’s family is available on the 1881 census for any one who is interested in this name and family.

Got a lot of arranging to do for my next trip Margaret, (One month) should end up in Scotland around the 3rd March for a couple of days.
I will also be back over to London in July 6-7th for the start of the ‘TOUR DE FRANCE’ so if you and Russ are anywhere near I will take you up on that offer of a good pint of beer. CHEERS!!

First 3 cylinder Rolls RoyceHello there TDH
Just printed out your latest memories and will sit down with a cool drink (43 cls here today) and enjoy my latest trip through the streets of Blantyre. I will send you a PM with the dates that we will be in London (great to know we can shout you a pint) or nearby it will be late August and early Sept. I actually have to now visit Essex, as my Uncle owned the first 3 cylinder Rolls Royce and he bequeathed it to the Scottish Auto Club (which is now not in operation) the car is somewhere in Essex and they are going to give me a letter of introduction so that I can go and see it for old times sake. Just a little bit of trivia for you..
