A Memory of Bridgend

I certainly remember Stuchbery's and went there once a year for the new school uniform with its felt hat and navy knickers. A great institution. Then I married the son of the owner and we called our second child Robin Stuchbery Turner. Please note correct spelling of this tricky name, I have nineteenth century business cards & notepaper in front of me. The Australian branch of the family had a slight change to the spelling and the American branch a different one. I cherish hand painted buttons, antique lace etc that was given to me when the shop closed down finally after 100 years.
