Quiet Womans Row

Mountjoy in Pillgwenlly.

They say everyone has 10 minutes of fame! I think mine was in 1955/6 when half the street were sent to Mountjoy Sunday School in the Gospel Hall. During the sermon of hell fire and damnation, my Uncle (Duncan Brown) and his chums dared me to shout out "Billy Bum". This I did with some gusto. No sooner than the words left my lips , we were all frog marched out into the street and read a riot act which would scare the humps of a camel. I became the first person ever to be banned from Mountjoy Sunday School. On reflection, 50 years earlier I would have probably been deported to Australia ,Fame at last!
