Some new pictures of Larkhall Thistle teams from the past, thanks a lot to John Milne for supplying photos 16 and 17, John’s father is in the pictures. The pictures are from the same era and the 1953 one had players names but the other one didn’t, any help filling them in would be welcome. Just leave a post at the bottom of this page and it will show at the top of the comments on the home page.
