Old photographs of Pontypool

March 12, 2011

Recently one of the visitors to this blog, Terry Stunden, ┬ákindly sent me a large collection of photographs of Pontypool and the surrounding area. Some of them were fairly modern and some were very old. Terry has waived the copyright as far as posting any of the photographs in this blog is concerned as many of the photos are his own. He also doesn’t think there is any copyright applying to the other photos. I therefore plan to publish some of these photographs. I have certainly never seen some of them before so I expect a lot of visitors won’t have seen them either.

If the copyright of any of these photographs is owned by any visitor to the site, please let me know and I will remove them.

In this first batch of photographs I am including some very old shots. If anyone has any information regarding any of them, I should be interested in hearing about it with a view to publishing the details later.

Well, that’s the first lot. I hope you find them of interest. If there are any young people studying the history of Pontypool in school they might find them useful. I shall be publishing more photographs soon.
