I recently had a photo sent to me from Merlyn Williams, ex Morriston now Canada, of Carmel Chapel Cricket Team 1912, and I wondered how many more old photos of Morriston and the people of Morriston there might be out there in various parts of the world.
It struck me that this could be the start of a gallery of old photos, as part of the main Morriston Camera Club website, so if anyone would like to e-mail me their photos with a short description, I'd be glad to include them in the new gallery.
Greetings from Yellowknife Canada Jeff, Local and expatriots let's dig out some old vintage photo's of Good Old Morriston I'm sure there are many out there, lets share them so we can share in the Pictorial History of this delightful and beautiful Town......
Hi Jeff, How you doing? How are things in Birchgrove?& Morriston? Hope you are getting a good response on the input to Gallery of Old Photos of Morriston ,We are sure there are many out there. Come on you good people, send them to Jeff, and let's share, Merlyn....
Hi again Merlyn.
Up to now the response has been very poor with only your photo received. So until I receive several more old photos of Morriston, the concept of posting them in a special gallery on this web site will have to be put on hold.
Again many thanks for your submission and hopefully others will follow suit in the near future.
All the best to you and Joyce
