Norma Izon: Aberystwyth

In the 1950s I stayed with my Nan in Pontrhydygroes. Every friday we would catch the bus to Aber and have fish&chips at the Dolphin. There was a fishmonger on Great Darkgate street with an open shop front, i was fascinated by all the variety of seafood. My sisters used to go to the King,s Hall there was a jukebox and fruit machines in the basement and lots of teddy boys with DAs smoking woodbines! We sat in the Castle grounds, there was a lovely fish pond with flower beds and seats round it. What a shame it’s gone.
