8 - Tunya Investigates - Factory Life

Hello and welcome to another episode of Tunya Investigates.

Today we're talking about David's childhood in Blantyre. What did he get up to every day? What were his interests? What was his family like? When did he start working at the mill? What kind of child would David be if he was growing up today?

For answers to all these questions, listen to this second episode of Tunya Investigates.


We are very grateful to our key funders the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic Environment Scotland and the Scottish Government for their support in helping us deliver the Birthplace Project.
