Not from the 50's or 60's, but this is one of my great - grandfathers shops, he had I think 2 in Abertillery and 1 in Barry ( his younger brother was found dead, believed murdered in Barry dock in 1935 having had the shops takings stolen from him).
This one is (possibly) the shop in Carlyle street thats now boarded up...

Hello Wherabouts was this shop - was it 14 Carlyle Street or 41?
I was wondering if there was a Winnie Hall in the family connections?
1911 Census the shop at 41 Carlyle Street was Harriet Hall's
Also was a Miss Emanuel a head teacher from this family.

I think this was the shop at no. 14, the Miss Emanuel was my great aunt, Marion Hughes Emanuel and she was the headteacher at ( i think) Aberbeeg infants school from the 1940's to the early 60's.
Her father Richard Edward Emanuel took over the running of the shops and I think bought out the owners in the late 1890's.
Sorry but the name Winnie or Harriet Hall doesnt ring any bells.

When I was a kid we used to say " if Abertillery burned down what would be left?"
...............................WELL?

It would be Ashes, silly!
I would spend hours in there....never had the pennies to buy anything though Sad

Oh....I forgot, does anyone remember the cafe in the arcade? Apparently an auntie of mine owned it but was someone I never met.
