A group of Abercarn likely-lads on holiday in Weymouth around 1955; this photograph has been supplied by Ken Buck (third from the left, back row). Does anyone else recognise themselves?




Abercarn Baths, during the period after closing and before demolition - they were situated on the steep grassy bank adjacent to Abercarn Infants and Primary School. Anyone who is old enough to have used the baths will remember how cold they were! Good memories of hot summer days though.....

"This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius"..... the hippy clothes place this somewhere in the early Seventies; some likely lads being serenaded outside the New Inn in Abercarn, including Newbridge boys Graham Harman (in yellow jacket), Bonker Preece and Enoch Rees-Jones (Ennock to all who knew him). Ennock was quite a character..... now sadly no longer with us. Photograph simultaneously supplied by Kelvin Thorne and John 'Polly' Peregrine.
