No chewing gum problem in 1900

The good old days?

Report presented by Heritage Scene - Neath

Below is a photograph of Windsor Road in 1900 before the days of chewing gum. 
But the roads had another problem - look at the horse droppings.   We wonder how many cleaners Neath had in those days?

In the background is Vint's Palace, where the Post Office is presently located.

Vint's Palace was the main source of entertainment in the early 1900's having many live shows in addition to silent films.  The buidling was destroyed by fire in 1920's and was replaced as an entertainment centre by Empire Cinema in 1926.

Next to Vint's Palace was the Victorian built Post Office shown here next to the new Royal  Mail Post Office.

The old Post Office (left) is a listed building and is unoccupied at present.   It is not known what it may be used for in the future.

The existing Post Office is scheduled for closure in the near future.
