Ton Pentre, Rhondda Fawr Valley c.1965
Memories of Ton Pentre
I lived not very far from Gelli Park and used to play on the swings and roundabout and watch the men and women play bowls on the bowling lawns many years ago... sometimes with my father in the late early 1950's into the 60's, before we moved away to live. I was born in 1943. Brings back memories.
That's me on the bike, my wife said it was 1963 but in fact it was 1962, early summer. At that time I was using my step-father's surname of Price. The policeman standing outside the post office was Sgt Brown.
This photo was taken in 1963, my husband was the boy on the bike. He said that it was taken on a Saturday afternoon. The chapel on the right of this view has now been demolished.
