Memories of Aberavon


We used to go there with our Sunday School years ago. There used to be sand dunes there. Me and my husband used to go courting there, we would catch a bus from our valley and watch the waves come in on the stormy nights, brill.

Bandstand In The Park

In the 1930s I lived only a few hundred yards away from the bandstand in the park (in Rice Street) and walked there so many times. A band would often play on Sunday evenings.
