Pontardawe 6

 

 

First three photographs contributed by Gareth Hicks.

 

On the reverse of both these first two photographs it says 'Surveying Class, Summer Course, Pontardawe, July 1931'.

I assume the course was held at the Pontardawe Mining and Technical Institute, indeed the man on the far left in the first one has passing resemblance to John Henry Davies
who became  Principal of Pontardawe Mining and Tech Inst in 1933 and for 22 years prior was a Gla County Mining lecturer.
In the first picture my uncle David Davies (Tirbach) of Cwmgors is second from the right in the front row, and in the other one he is on the far right.

Undated but I am advised the late 1930s
See feature on main page under Pontardawe

The man on the far right looks like my uncle Rees Davies (Tirbach)
