Alltami Bryn Methodist Church cast of 'Zureka the Gypsy Maid' "

Bryn Methodist Church, Alltami, Buckley


I think that this was perfomed in 1931, because I was about six only at the time. Doreen Oliver was my age (2nd row from front; second from left). The Mountain Colliery closed in 1930 and the Elm Colliery closed in 1934. I remember this was just after the Mountain closed.


I was born in Davies Cottages which are in the background. We moved to New Brighton council houses in 1948.
