Old photos of Pontrhydygroes

In trying to track down details to resolve a planning query, I've acquired a bunch of scans of old photos and postcards of the village. Thought I'd collate them all. Given the dates, I don't think there are any copyright issues, but if you have objections, please feel free to contact me.

All dates are hearsay (and I've grave doubts about the ones claiming 1925-1927).
