Aberystwyth, Castle Ruins And Eisteddfod Circle 1964

Memories of Aberystwyth


I was delighted to find this lovely photo of Aberystwyth on the website of The Francis Frith Collection, as it was taken in 1925 – the same year my grandparents got married and went to Aberystwyth on their honeymoon! I imagine they must have looked very like the people in this view.

Not much traffic.

I have a bookmark with this exact same photo that my Welsh pen friend sent me c.1960. (I'm in America.) It has several other pics of Aberystwyth, and says "BOOKMARK BY FIRTHS" at the bottom.

Does anyone remember Binky's Chinese laundry in South Road? I remember watching them washing the sheets by the geulan (spelling?) just by the river at the back of the shop.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?
