Help put some names to faces

editorial image

Reader Mr Charles Smith has kindly provided us this picture taken on the occasion of Her Majesty The Queen’s Coronation in June, 1953. It shows the workers from Corsar’s flax mill, or possibly the Alma Works on the Millgate which belonged to Francis Webster and Co.

Mr Smith has a few names to go with the picture but would appreciate if any more could be added. The names already known are: twins Nan and Jean Beattie; Sheila Doig; Liza Swankie; Margaret Cargill, Betty Leuchars; Big Meg (back centre) and Little Annie Law, who were both well known at Arbroath Football Club. We will also post this picture on Facebook for people to add names by commenting.
