690906 Newport Advertiser Image Only
This image of Wollerton Social Club appeared in the Newport Advertiser on 6 Sept, 1969 (p13) as one of their “Name the Place” mystery locations. That competition has now closed, but you may find it interesting to take a copy of this picture to the old railway bridge from which it was taken and play “Spot the Difference”. This author can see two obvious ones and two more subtle ones.

If you have any other pictures similar to these which you are willing to share via the website, instructions on how to send them to us are on the Old Photographs Index page.
