Blodwen And Betty - a Memory of Swansea.

Dear Frith Collection,
My grandfather, Llew E. Morgan, was a renowned photographer in Wales, (see
FULL CIRCLE at www.morganhopkin.co.uk)
I am convinced that he took this photograph as my grandmother and mother are walking towards the camera on the right. As usual, my mother, then aged five has turned her head away from the camera.
We still have over a thousand of LLew's images on glass plates and on film and would love to know for sure that he contributed the negative to you back in the twenties.
Neville's was my grandmother's favourite shop.
Please advise,
With thanks,
Carole
