History

Terraced house and shop, part of the group of properties built in the earlier C19 for D Thomas (died 1876) maltster, including Nos 5, 13-15 and 21-29 High Street. It then passed with the other Thomas properties to D. P. Powell. Let as 2 tenancies through C19: the right half to J. Howells printer 1840-4 who was also a beer retailer for a short period, his ale-house here called The Falcon 1841 was at No 25 by 1844. Rented by William Davies, the poet Iolyn Bach, 1844-5 who kept a small private school, and then the Rev E Rees of Salem chapel 1845-6. The left or E half was tenanted by D James, grocer and flour-dealer in 1840s and he moved the The Falcon Inn back here by 1849. By 1866 the inn is not named and the house tenanted by James' widow, grocer. By 1899 bought by Thomas Roberts the grocer and owner of the adjacent Jubilee stores at No 31. He kept the shops for ironmongery in the left half and glassware in the right. Illustrated in the engraving of Thomas Roberts' 'Crown Stores and Steam Bakery' in Llandovery Guide of 1909 showing the shop windows with iron cresting and the roof with a large chimney on the ridge to centre right.
