Barbara O'Connell (nee Paines) 1952-53-Swansea exhibition

“Let me shake your hand!”

Barbara visited the exhibition in Swansea museum and seeing a woman looking at one of the photographs she said:
“That’s me in the photo”.

The woman turned to Barbara and said:
"Let me shake your hand!”

Barbarba says she was quite touched by the gesture.
It turned out that this woman's husband had TB as a child though he was not in Craig-y-nos. He didn't want to talk about it and tried to hurry his wife away from the exhibition.
