Robert (Bob) Forrest and Roy

Robert (Bob) Forrest and RoyI have attached a photograph of my Grand-father,Robert (Bob) Forrest who lived at 11 Park Crescent, where he was one of the first tenants in this new housing in 1933.

He had moved from the condemned tenement at 108 Broompark Road, just opposite the Smiddy.  He was born, and raised, in the wee farm, between the smiddy, and the nursery next to Hunthill Road, Blantyre. His parents were Andrew Forrest and Lilias Main.

Most of his working life was spent with animals, with heavy horses being his love, working off and on with farm animals, and latterly, working night shift at, what was referred to, as the ham and egg factory in Whistleberry Road.

In the photograph, he is accompanied by Roy, the  farm dog, who would help gather in the cattle.

Pictured is Robert Main, Jim’s Great Grandfather at Little Udston Farm, Westcraigs.
