"The photo was taken about 1954 at the Hall, (top of Crescent Street, Merthyr Vale). The hall was used by the children for parties, rainy days and special occasions. It is possibly a party for Morlais Buses. The children are from Merthyr Vale, and on the back of the photograph  it states "South Wales Press and Picture Agency' Eric Warrilow, Merthyr"

My mother, Susan Cresswell and her sister, are sat in the second row (bottom of photo) with their 2 aunties and 2 cousins - all dressed the same!"
