We’ve used £88.00 from this month’s donations to put towards converting several Blantyre cine reels from the 1950s and 1960s for all to see.
The films belong to Sanny McVicar of High Blantyre and are now converted over to electronic format. They feature High Blantyre Prefabs, walking on the backroads, playing at Milheugh Falls as well as other local scenes. Local history page, Blantyre Project will be screening these charming, nostalgic films online, with full permission from the family, sometime in July.
More donations from this month’s fundraising coming shortly.
