Blast From The Past - a Memory of Carmarthen.

While visiting friend in a local nursing home I was walking down the corridor admiring the prints of local interest, When a was drawn to a print of Lammas street and to the Willow Café which was owned by my Grandmother , while looking further around the print I was astonished to see my Father standing on the road outside deep in conversation with another gentleman. I lost my Dad when I was 16 and have very few pictures of him. I cant tell you how wonderful it was to see part of my history in print for my family and others to see.
Iau Davies (Stephens) I will be ordering this as a roller blind to show everyone x
Update I decided to have this memory turned into a roller blind which now I proudly show to all my friends ,but when I showed it to my brother in law he noticed along with my husband that the man standing along side my father in this picture was no other than their father MY father in law, we all couldn't believe the coincidence. My father and my father in law were friends and as Carmarthen was a small town and everyone did now each it still is amazing that the photographer captured this second in time forever!!! THANK YOU it means so much to us as both have now passed
