GLANDWR STREET

Hi
Researching my family tree and i come across
77 GLANDWR STREET IN 1905
but there is no such number in this street these days,
can anyone shed any light on this.

Thanks

Hi Gary - if you look on Google street view you'll see there are some gaps along the street. There is quite a large gap where #77 and several other houses would normally be. I'd imagine it was one of the missing houses although why/when it disappeared I'm not sure.

Quite a  few years back a number of properties were demolished in this area due to significant subsidence,  Maybe No 77 was one of them.

I used to do a Sunday paper round from Glan Ebbw Terrace to the park and then down Old Blaina Road in the mid 70s but I can't remember if there were houses ther then?

GLANDWR STREET

Electoral Register

77 Glandwr Street 1922-1928
Isaac Davies, Mary Ann Davies, Enoch Davies, Wyndham Davies.

1929 No odd numbers between 69 and 79
1930 number 79 also disappears.

1928/29 safe bet.
