I read the memories of Aberaman and Miss Venables with great interest and a bit of a tear in my eye. My grandparents emigrated from Aberdare, New Tredegar area in 1912, two weeks after the Titanic went down. The fares were cheap.

I often used to go to the Miners Hall, to the pictures on a Friday. It was a family treat, we would watch a film, stop at Wynnens chip shop, and also pick a bottle of beer up for my grandfather Percy Honour. We all lived at Paklands Lodge. The beer used to come from The Swan, near Whyndham Terrace. Later on I was courting, and went to the Aberaman Hall, back row upstairs, but not to watch the film,b ut that's another story! Good old memories, sadly gone for ever.
