Edwardian Visit to Basket Farm


1910-baptist-church-outing-to-basket-farm-wmA charming Edwardian photo next, a first for this one appearing online.

This is a Sunday outing from High Blantyre Baptist Church around 1910. Edwardian ladies and gents from Blantyre are dressed in their Sunday finery and are visiting the high fields at Basket Farm, High Blantyre.

There are several babies and young toddlers in this photo dressed equally as nice.  I’m loving all the wonderful hats and I wonder if they travelled on an open omnibus/carriage from High Blantyre, or walked up the backroads dressed like that!

With thanks to Betty McLean for a copy of this photo.
