Echo Stand At Bus Station Bridgend

A Memory of Bridgend

I was a big time Echo & Western Mail seller before I left school in 1966. I remember the guy selling the Echo, his name was Dennis and he sported a beard.
One of my first jobs when I left school was in the parcel office, where I started as a parcel boy, and then I worked my way up to parcel van driver before going on to become a conductor. I finished in Jan 1971, just as decimilisation came in.
I have many fond memories of working on the buses (Western Welsh).
