Llwynypia General - a Memory of Llwynypia.

I lived with my parents in two rooms in a house on Church Street near Partridge Square.  I had a small mongrel dog called Spot who used to go down to the bus shelter and wait for the bus to Porth, get on it and ride to Porth and back.  My father was a miner and my mother worked in Llwynypia hospital and was there when the wounded soldiers were brought back from Dieppe.    We "adopted" three of the wounded soldiers and they used to visit us regularly.  I only remember one of their names - Jack Sargent - but they are all remembered with fondness. I went to Pontrhondda school and had music lessons (playing the piano accordian).  I was in fact a member of "Joy Clark's Accordian Band" - happy memories.  By the way the single storey shop in the pictures was always known as "The old man's".
