New Year 2007

Another bite sized chunk of Blantyre History

Happy New Year 2007Well hello there, Merry Christmas to you and yours and a safe and happy 2007. :D

Just been looking at the photo on page two and still not sure what I am looking for :? but will keep on and tell you my ideas after New years. As I read your memories, even down to the sound of the wind in the sheets I can imagine you as a young lad enjoying your life, I too was laughing at your story of the visit to the movies. I’m thinking we are of the same vintage and a country town in New Zealand sounds very similar to Blantyre in the 50’s, with movieton news as our look out into the big world etc makes me think back and the wonderful and not so wonderful memories of those day. Thank you for getting this old brain into working condition again :)
Looking forward to the next walk, mind you I will have to get a new pair of walkers the others are wearing thin. :lol:

Now next year we will be staying in Birmingham, Bedford, Alkeld, London and Cornwall to name a few, Russ and I would love to buy you a pint if you are anywhere near those places
See you in 2007 with more wanders through the streets of Blantyre.
Best regards

Hello TDH, I have some interesting news to tell you I have been sending your notes to my cousin’s husband who grew up in Blantyre and his Granny lived in Logan Street and he has just sent me a email to tell me that the girl on Page 37 is my cousin Betty… now how about that. Alex lived at 57 Small Crescent and is really enjoying your stories.
Hope you had a great Christmas


Fantastic Margaret!!
A couple of years ago I was having a discussion about the same photo in Blantyre and this person mentioned at the time, that he knew the girl in the photo, but I have forgotten her name since then. I will make a point of talking to this person on my next visit to Blantyre – February 2007 and find out what he knows of her.
I of course will provide this info, if any, to you through a private message.
Have a Guid New Year and
Lang Me Yer Lum Reek

Hello there TDH
Happy New Year there, may 2007 be a great one. I have just been talking to my cousin and his Granny lived in a upstairs flat on the left in Logan Street between Auchinraith Road and Glasgow Road, he can’t remember the number. So this world is getting smaller and smaller, I have since found out that my Mum’s family moved to Blantyre around the 1915’s so checking that out now. Looking forward to some more walks through Blantyre in 07, even real walks.


Continuing the conversation between Thomas Dunsmuir Hartman in Chicago (known as TDH or Drapadew) and originally from Logan Street, Blantyre and Margaret in Queensland Australia on TalkingScot.
