Can Anyone Help - a Memory of Trebanos.

I live in America and recently discovered some letters written by a seventeen year old girl from your area in Wales back in 1937-38. She and my late mother were pen pals, and corresponded frequently. The girl's name was Elvina, born October 5, 1920. I have no last name. The return address on the letters is: Graig Road, Trebanos, Swansea. I even have a lovely photo of her on holiday in Pleasure Park, Barry Island, Glam! I would love to communicate either with Elvina or her descendants and return these letters and picture.

Thank you!
