More about this scene

The clock on the front of the Aberdare and District Co-operative Society (right) dates from the thirties, when the building was rebuilt. The Co-op dominated this street: drapery and millinery were at number 9 Cardiff Street, and the main part with food, ironmongery, and footwear was at numbers 3, 4 and 5. This elegant building was improved in 1965, but the store finally closed in 1988.
