Photographs of Beacon Road People. (1)
This old photo was taken outside the Hostels. its a bit grainey but Barbara thinks she can name some
of the girls. It also shows that lookout pill-box that is on Wayne's photo we think.
The left side photo is from Wayne Stephens of himself in 1943, the Stephens lived at number 40 Beacon Road
He comments it's a terrible photo and probably not one you would want to include on the website.
However it does show the pill-box, complete with aerial
which used to stand on a hill a little to the left of the main entrance to the Trading Estate.
The photo on the right side is of Robert and Mary Rees outside 32 Beacon Road.

photos below were sent to us by Colin Rees. They were taken in the back garden
of 58, Beacon Road,
looking towards the industrial estate.
In the backgroundd of the 1947 photo with just Colin in it is a building with two big chimneys which we think may have been the Glassworks.
We recall there being a fire at the works about 1950-51. Does anyone have memories of the Glassworks or the fire?.
The left hand photo is of Colin Rees wrapped up in his warm clothes in his back garden at 58, Beacon Road it was taken in 1947
The right hand photo is also in Colin's back garden. It is of Colin and Peter Wilson drying off after being hosed down by Colin's mum in 1949.
