Description

This absorbing collection of archive images provides a comprehensive glimpse into the history of Cilfynydd during the last 120 years. Compiled with over 200 images, this selection highlights the history of this industrial Welsh village, one that would witness one of the worst colliery disasters in mining history, only to be further decimated by an incredible tornado some years later. Cilfynydd was also the birthplace of two of the world's leading opera singers - one of whom received a knighthood - along with leading academics, a Peer at the House of Lords and numerous other first-class musicians and sportsmen. Capturing snapshots of bustling streets and local industries, including an in-depth history of the Albion Colliery that shaped the village we see today, this book also provides an insight into all espects of the community, from religion and education to sport and leisure. It will delight all those who want to know more about this area of South Wales and evoke memories of a bygone time for those who have lived here.
