Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Advertiser @ View -

Vin­tage fun and games were dusted off and fresh­ened up to treat Mon­k­lands chil­dren to a day to re­mem­ber back in 1989.

Eight- year- old Lynsey Rank­ine, pic­tured in the Ad­ver­tiser of Au­gust 4 in that year, was one of thou­sands of kids to visit Sum­mer­lee her­itage cen­tre in Coat­bridge dur­ing the school sum­mer hol­i­days.

Lynsey demon­strated new­found skills with an old-style gird’n’cleek at the in­dus­trial mu­seum, showing Ad­ver­tiser staff mys­ti­fied by the clas­sic props how it was done.

A Sum­mer­lee Her­itage Cen­tre spokesper­son said: “Young­sters like Lynsey seem to en­joy play­ing with the old toys.

“This makes for a wel­come change from their usual toys and games.”
