Beryl Jesse grew up in Splott during the 1930's

Clifton Street was a damn good shopping centre it was a real shopping centre for working people. We also used to go to Albany Road up by Roath Park. We would never catch the bus, always walk. We went there for food shopping. As children Valerie and I were lucky because we had each other and we were taught to share from a very young age and I think some only children can be spoilt, I used to say to Valerie I am glad I had you.
