Rheola Street.Penrhiwceiber. - a Memory of Penrhiwceiber.

I lived in Rheola St. from 1941 till 1950. Opposite Maggie Ropey. Never knew her real name, but I think her husband worked in the pit.Other shops I remember, Jackie Morgan, Fruit and Veg, Mr Kean,private Grocer, Peglers,Grocers, and Barnes and Bullens,Newsagents, by the Clock.Two of my aunties sang in Handels choir at the time. They were Sarah ann Holmes from Glasbrook Terrace, and Harriot Evans from Church Street.Happy days.Ceiber is still home even after sixty odd years away.
