I’m today opening up a huge planned section of Blantyre Marriage photos for Weddings to be archived in Blantyre Project. I’ll be bringing you many, many couples photos of Blantyre weddings over the decades periodically on Blantyre Project. When you see these kind of posts, please feel free to tag the people are their families. Do you know these couples? Are they still in Blantyre?
Today is the turn of 1967 and 2 particular weddings.
Pictured is Miss Jean Kelso in 1967 at her wedding to John McEwan, who formerly lived at Hawthorn Street in Glasgow. Jean was a Blantyre girl then at the time of her wedding living at 46 Station Road. The couple married in Stonefield Parish Church on Glasgow Road.
Mr Tom Callender is pictured here in 1967, then of 69 Station Road, Blantyre married his sweetheart Miss Sandra Hunter of Hillview Drive, Blantyre. I think this may have been early 1967. The wedding took place at David Livingstone Memorial Church. Tom at that time was a cost clerk at Ravenscraig Steel works in Motherwell and his bride, Sandra was a primary school teacher at Udston Primary School.
