Pontypridd 499 HNY Catherine Street R Marshall

Subject: Pontypridd UDC 499 HNY
Chassis: Austin J2 Omnicoach
Body: 11-seat
Location: Pontypridd, Catherine Street
Date: mid-1960s

The Austin waits on Catherine Street, probably for crews on changeover. In this view the vehicle is not carrying the “P.U.D.C” lettering.

This scene was to change soon after this photo was taken with the building of the Sardis Street bridge which opened in 1967. Just about every building visible in this shot was demolished and Mill Street in the background ceased to be the principal road into the Rhondda.
