Does anyone know who Ganshaboon was? My father was born in Caedraw in 1920. He used to call me Ganshaboon when I was very young. He told me that he and his friends used to run after a particular man, shouting 'ganshaboon'. He never knew why....he just ran with his friends. I actually googled the word....and the closest thing I found was an Indian business man's name....Gunchabin.
Was there a character like this in Merthyr during the 20's?
