Good Place In Which To Grow Up - a Memory of Pontycymer.

Really strange looking at the photo of Oxford St circa 1955.  It took me some minutes to work out that I was looking at the old Post Office from the Square.  I remember the railings outside the Post Office.  I guess it's all changed now but it was a lovely place in which to grow up.  No-one locked their front doors in those days.  Ho hum, how times have changed!

Paul, lived in Oxford St from 1953 to 1971.
