Hanbury Road, Pontypool
This ephemeral image is a montage of two photographs taken from the same spot on Hanbury Road, Pontypool, but more than one hundred years apart.
The black and white street view was taken during a quiet time in 1914 and merged with my colour image taken in January 2015.
This particular view, with Mount Pleasant Church on the left, looks towards the clock tower of Pontypool Town Hall. On the right of the image, a tall stone wall that kept the Hanbury gardens private has since been removed to provide a location for the town’s war memorial, access to Pontypool park and for transport stopping points.
