WHERE ARE WE LIVING?- WHAT IS THE NAME OF OUR TOWN ? A DIFFICULTY WITH THE ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT. At the monthly meeting of the Public Works Committee of the Barry District Council held in the Clerk's Office on Tuesday evening last, Mr E. B. Smith-Jones presiding, the Clerk read a letter from the Ordnance Survey Department asking the Council to decide upon the town's name, as at present the place is known locally ae Barry, Barry Dock, Cadoxton, and Barry Island. It was unanimously decided that the name of the town was Barry. The Clerk here asked if it was not time to con- sider the question of the proper naming of the railway stations within the limits of the town. Some seven years ago the Barry Railway Company had offered to re-name their stations. Mr J. L. Davies: We'll have to change our bill- heads aid everything else- (Langhter.) The Clerk was of opinion that it would be a distinct advantage to Cadoxton. Many people arrived at Cadoxton land did not know they were in Barry. Ultimately the Chairman moved that they re- commend the Council to propose such a step as the clerk had mentioned to the Barry Company, and this having been seconded, it was unanimously agreed to.
