3 Generations Unchanged1930s 1980s - a Memory of Caerau.
My nan - Francis Bowen moved to Blaencaerau from the Rhondda at the age of 7. Married Idris Bowen (my grandad) who worked in Caerau Colliery and then Midcast. Living in Blaencaerau didn't change in many years as I shared a lot of the same outdoor activities as my nan, and my mother after her. Slidding down Billy's tip on pieces of cardboard, playing in the river where the water came from underground and rushed out of a huge concrete pipe, rope swing on the lamppost behind Blaencaerau Road by the park. Very good memories!
