Two of the above I remember well are Ivor Jones who, as you can see, also stocked Pontypool Japan Ware, which was something of a rarity, and Parkhouse. The next posting will be the last from the Pontypool Official Guide.

    I remember Bracey’s in Crane Street. My Mother’s friend worked there. She is in her 80’s now but still talks fondly of her time there.
