The Trowbridge family of Millwall, on holiday in Wales (1940s). Grace Trowbridge, Mrs Trowbridge, Mr Trowbridge and Alice Trowbridge, with two friends and a cousin in front. The family lived in a turning, near Cahir Street, opposite the Vulcan pub. Down this turning there were allotments, on the Barnfields; there was a stream here and butterflies. The Trowbridges lived in Hesperus Crescent when it was built, and moved to Chepstow because of the bombing. by A. Lowery
