New lamps for old!
New lamps for old! (2013284)
Victoria Square bête noire – 1962 As part of the Civic Trust Scheme to improve the town centre (1962), new street lamps were installed and put up in March and April of that year; the old lamp (on the right) as not yet been removed. The ‘Echo’ bill-stand at the foot of the lamp-post was one of the town’s enduring images of the 1960s. This was the pitch of Malcolm Howells, an ex-pupil from Mardy School, and the inveterate vendor on this spot for years - regardless of the weather. Mr Howells eventually became the proprietor of the Copper Kettle. (photo: RCT Libraries; blurb: Gerald Richards)

Ynyslwyd Road junction (2013244)
Ynyslwyd Road junction and the wonderful ‘Monkey Puzzle Tree’. Plans to build a house at this junction were successfully applied for by Mr. J. Rees in 1866. I think that Mr Williams (who owned and ran the Blaengwawr Stores – now the Premier Blaengwawr Shop) and his family lived here in the 1960s-70s. (Gerald Richards)
