Albany Road c1980. The stylish old post office which had served the community for many years was closed and business moved to the unflattering premises on the corner of Donald Street. Today it is a small part of the WH Smith operation

Barry Island 1905, in the distance you can see Treharne Pier.

This is the Pier built by J.P Treharne on Friars Point in the early 1870's. He had previously bought Friars Point House from Francis Crawshay and the Pier was part of an ambitious early venture to use the Island for leasure and housing purposes,.in association with a new Dock and railway. This scheme crashed when a short depression hit the iron and steel industry and the Island was subsequently sold to the Windsor estate in 1877, who wanted to protect its investment in the new dock and town of Penarth by preventing the development of a rival dock at Barry. The rickety Pier was deemed unsafe and demolished in the early 1900's.

I hated that, seeing all the barricades up, people being stopped and having their pockets and bags searches without a warrant, having to pass through checkpoints etc. Just shows you that the authorities can just come in and do that kind of shit if they want.
