This is a collection of photos from Anne Davies (nee John )
Anne moved to 49, Beacon road in 1949 when her father Geoff John worked in the Furguson factory
and then later in Sobells. They then moved to Cwmbach in 1953 about the same time as we were all
being moved out of the bungalows to different parts. Anne is still in touch with some of her friends
from her early years in Beacon Road.
This photo shows David Betty and Anne John as Jack and Jill in fancy dress outside the Hostel.
The occasion was the Coronation in 1953. They won first prize.
