Cwmdare 1949 - a Memory of Cwmdare.

My parents lived in Cwmdare briefly in 1949 when I was only a baby. Dad was Edward Williams and his wife Margaret (she came from Kent). I have relatives in Hirwaun who I stayed with. I have photos of the countryside only but guess we lived in colliery houses as dad was a miner. Dad was born in Gamlyn Terrace (Hirwaun) in 1923 and had a brother Austin. Does anyone know which streets were colliery houses at that time, and did anyone know my parents then?
