Glad that my little piece about Llangefni stirred a few memories for others as well. The market days were very important in Llangefni.
The cattle market brought in the farming community, men for the sale and farming news the women to do their shopping. As I said before there were a lot of shops to choose from. As I commented on someone else's memory the Thursday market was also very important because it filled the town square and the area under the Town Hall.
This is where my India Rock Llanerchymedd man sold is stock, delicious. Most of the other smallholders seemed to come from Liverpool or Manchester way, several wearing turbans on their heads, which to us in those days were very strange and unusual.
But the atmosphere was great and that is where most of my generation bought the up to date clothes of the day with great market prices.
Anyway enough ramblings, I look forward to reading many more stories on your brilliant website.
Diolch am yr atgofion hyfryd.
