Annie Docherty at Caldervale

 

1920 Annie Docherty at 9 CaldervaleAnne Dorrian recently shared this photo on Finmeoot Friends Page. Pictured in 1920 is Annie Docherty (nee Longworth). Looking at the 1930 Valuation roll, Robert Longworth was renting number 9 Caldervale Terrace, (at Finmeoot near Blantyreferme), the owner being A.G.Moore Coalmasters.

Next door at number 8 were the Dicksons, and at number 10 were the McGintys.

Robert Longworth was then leasing the house for an annual rent of £9 and 10 shillings.

Whilst these kids were born in Blantyre, due to the location of Caldervale mining village, they schooled in Newton, and shopped with families mostly in Uddingston.

Elizabeth Weaver Love her shiny wee shoes with what looks like button fastenings. We still had buttons on our best shoes in the early 50s and they needed a button hook to fasten them – job for an adult!
