Ann Teear remembers her VE Day party in Bangor Street, Roath:
“I was only six when this was taken. I’m the one in front with the Alice band … My poor mum, you can hardly see her in the photo, but it was her that did all the arranging.
“Across the road was the back of Firth’s Greengrocers on Wellfield Road, they gave us all the orange boxes to put the food on and to sit on, you can see them in the picture.
We brought the kitchen table and the gramophone. I can remember my mother making sandwiches of mashed parsnips with banana essence and they really tasted like bananas.”
