Here’s a blast from the past - Treherbert Band in 1930! Many of the band are named but some individuals are unidentified. Can anyone help us identify any of the missing names?

Thomas Forrest of Pontypridd CDV Photo of the 1873 Memorial Cup presented to the South Wales Choral Union after their win at the Crystal Palace in London. Photos like this were sold as souvenirs and this cup gave wide fame to Wales as a ‘land of song’.

Also two Victorian gentlemen from Thomas Forrest of Pontypridd. The first dated 21st July 1884, the second Dec 6th 1884. Both were Saturdays when the photographer would be busy, interestingly Wednesday was the second busiest day - it’s still Ponty’s market day to this day.
