Circa Early 1980’s Mr Bill Humphreys. He used to keep a shop on the corner of Church Street and Spring Road. The shop was really a room in his house with jars of sweets on offer! I loved his “Black Jacks”! I think he also used to deliver newspapers?
Circa Second World War - The Photograph is of P.C 80 Jack, (John Henry). Parry.
“Although his name was John, he was always known as Jack. He was the local "Bobby" at Rhostyllen for a number of years and was described as "A hard copper". He passed away some time ago and I guess the photo was taken during the Second World War” - John Williams (Jack was John’s Uncle)
