    Albert Road School, Penarth, Wales, UK
    Albert Road School, Penarth, Wales, UK
    Albert Road School which is just around the corner from 5 Salop Place home to the orphaned Ryan children and their local school. Aunt Mary's 'Brief History' mentions that they attended this school. Actually, I recall a lane at the back of the school which led into Salop Place. Stephen and I were pupils there - what a shame I had no idea then that my grandfather and great aunts and uncle also attended back in the 1900s. [L. Ryan 4/1/2010]

    Aunt Mary has confirmed that:
    * The orphaned Ryan children attended this school: Catherine, Jane, Ellen, Eddie and Jack Ryan
    * Eddie Ryan's children attended - Milly, George, Sidney and Mary Ryan
    * Jack Ryan's children attended - John, Tom, Glyn, Peter, Eileen, Jim, Colleen and Joe Ryan
    * Sid Ryan's children attended - Les and Stephen

    Beach Road Penarth in the 1900s - 1910s
    The entrance to Alexandra Park from Beach Road, Penarth. Photo ca 1900s - 1910s - a park that must have been well known to all residents in Penarth. Alexandra Park, Penarth is a well-preserved Edwardian urban public park. It is in an attractive location overlooking the Bristol Channel, retaining its layout and many of its original features. The park was laid out quickly between 1901 and 1902.

    Windsor Road, Penarth ca 1908 - the principal road running from Cogan (where our 'Founding Family' of Ryans lived) to Penarth. The main shops were and are located here. The road continues as Windsor Terrace and then into Beach Road which leads to the Esplanade.
    Penarth Docks
    Penarth Docks
    Penarth Docks at the height of its importance ca. 1900. John Patrick Ryan (1852-90) worked there as a shipwright and it was there that he probably sustained the injury that led to tetanus resulting from a deep cut or wound which led to his early death at the age of 38. The six Ryan children were orphaned.
