Lydney - the Old Post Office at Templeway West.
photo was taken from an old Calendar. The writing beneath it was "Cottages
that were demolished to make way for Templeway West (also Lydney Pound
attached). The old Post Office, Pound and cottages once sited opposite
Lydney Town Hall. The Old Pound was demolished in the 1920s. The Old
Post Office, used later as two cottages, demolished about 1939 to make
way for Templeway West."
Thanks to Beaty Nice who added (April 2007): "This is a photo of my father Walter Nice. He was horseman to Mr Martin, Holms Farm. We lived in Green Cottage in the 1920's & 30's".
Thanks also to Anne Kay who added (Jan 2009): "My great grandfather used to be postmaster at Lydney Post Office before the 1920s, can't be more specific I'm afraid. My grandfather was born there. His name was Arthur Shaw and his parents' names were Deborah and John Shaw".
