Thanks Cupcake. The first photo is looking across Inkerman from Cefn Parc, that's a five foot high snow drift between the streets.
The second photo is looking down my front steps and where i managed to dig out for the wife and I to get to work.

Hey Butch,
Is that the Miss Taylor's shop I see at the link in road just before Park Hill.
Or had they gone by that time??

Hello Milkman, I've made enquiries and no one can remember there being a Miss Taylors shop in Inkerman Terrace. There was however a small shop in the back garden of No. One Parkville belonging to Mrs Edith Thomas J. P. Of course it faced Inkerman Terrace.
The other shop that you may be thinking of was Mrs. Williams, which was on Park Hill next to the junction of Parkville. The big building you can see to the far end of the photo is Marion Heights where Dr. Daily lived, and in latter years Peter Lewis and his family lived there.
I hope that makes sense to you Butch.

Thanks Butch. That which you stated is all correct.
The Misses Taylor had the shop previously.
At that time a family called Pitts had Peter's house. They had a son Nicky and a daughter also.
Dan y Bryn had been called Marion Heights.
I remember Daff Williams shop on corner of Parkville. We had so much choice as to where to shop in those day.
Thanks a lot, Butch

Keanjo this was the time BT (Before Trevor)
My father did deliver milk to those streets but in WWII a so-called Block System was introduced so we then delivered only to lower Georgetown until the war ended.
Incidentally Edith Thomas (nee Phillips) was a very good friend of our family

Milkman, You surprise me ,I thought Trev was delivering in 1979 and I recall him clearly delivering in Harcourt Terrace ,cheerful as always,face red in the wintry wind, scarf around his ears ,standing next to his chained wheeled van, parked near snow heaps on the road.I can't recall the exact date but it was around 1980.

You are right- We were at cross purposes.
Trevor was delivering at time of snow picture.
I had been talking about the late 40s earlier.
Apologies.
