Vintage Postcards #29 – Church Street

An unusual photograph from Valentine’s and Sons Ltd, in their Sepiatype series.  Three girls look down the road towards the photographer, but otherwise the scene is very peaceful.  The postcard is unused.  It took me a while to work out the viewpoint from which the photograph was taken, because the road has changed quite significantly, but the wall on the right, which is the rear wall of the churchyard, is the give-away.  For those unfamiliar with the geography of Aberdovey, this is the road which, as you enter Chapel Square and face up Copper Hill Street, shoots off to the right, behind the big Wesleyan Methodist chapel.
