10 July (1953) Who’s that? – Wally Barnes, of course!

  • 10 1888 (Tues.) Foundation stone of the Brecon Old Bank was laid by Mrs. Lewis, wife of Mr. W. Lewis, J.P., the manager, in the presence of a large number of spectators.“The new building, when completed, will be very stately, and will form a very handsome addition to the business premises of the town.” The stone having been well and truly laid, the workmen, to the number of 44, were invited by the manager to a sumptuous dinner at the Coffee Tavern, prepared and served in first-class style by Mr. J. Carpenter.
