Many thanks to Titch for sending in this Christmas card from 1961.
Titch added, "one it's a Christmas Card the Rakes who lived in Church St sent us at Christmas 1961. He was an Auctioneer and a regular member of the Con Club."
Any names anybody please
Question for everyone. Did many family's at the time send this type of family photo as a Christmas card ?

Hi Shelly, they must look very alike, I probably knew both of them, long long time ago!
It was nice meeting you in the shop last time I was in Tredegar, good to put a face to the 'Handle'
Best regards, hope Brian's rushed off his feet!
I love a Black Bush!
