    If the South Wales Traffic planners were half-pissed every Friday afternoon, that would explain a lot and certainly confirm my suspicions :hehe:

    Me as well, but the collection appears to date from 1958. Maybe our corner shop had old stock?

    Now you are talking. I actually bought a full album from eBay of the Brooke Bond cards a couple of years ago, as my original set got thrown out.

    I thought so. In my defence, I would point out that this is a thread populated by senile old crusties and if you can't make the appropriate allowances ..... I forget what I was going to say ......

    It should be on those old insurance maps I posted a while back. I think that's the Pearl building in the background, which looked so out of place when it was built.
