Hello, just wanted to let you know i really enjoyed seeing the old photographs of aberystwyth. my grand mother lived quite a lot of her youth there, and i was pleased to be able to see the town as she must have seen it. she married and with her family moved to australia, so her descendants are all australian. she was very well loved, and it's nice to make this connection with her youth. thanks.
