The Mystery Tortoise Photo

Our recent loss in the family finds us now knee deep into the dreaded “sorting out affairs” process and amongst all the paperwork I chance discovered this photo which appeals to me as both a history buff and tortoise owner! I don't know who exactly these people are or when exactly the photo was taken but I do know precisely where it was taken, Boduan in North Wales (a mile or so from the AA Sentry Box that I mentioned last year) outside the former Post Office that once resided there in fact (which we have loose family connection with). So taken was I with this photo that I visited the site to try and locate the exact spot this Herman Tortoise once attracted half the population of the village! What was the story I wonder? I guess we will never know...

Then and now The former Post Office, Boduan
