Constitution Hill

WP1038-aberystwyth

Another nice vintage walking photograph which was scanned for me from Brian Partridge’s collection. Again unidentified but it had a feel of Aberystwyth sea front , especially the hill looming in the background. This proved to be correct, it is known as Constitution Hill.  The two girls are walking back along Victoria Terrace towards town. They may be on holiday be equally they could be students from the university. It is a small photo, and would seem to be cut from a strip.  The date is probably mid-1920s. Notice how the darkroom have scrawled the reference number in the edge of the negative.

Victoria Terrace aberystwyth

It’s quite hard to replicate the angle today due to the different lenses, but the dark grey building in the street view matches the one seen over the gentleman’s left shoulder.  The footpath can also be seen in this older photo.

There is another Aberystwyth walking picture on the site.
