Description

This wonderful selection of images, drawn from a number of private and public collections, revisits the life of the people, and the places in which they lived, that have shaped Maesteg and the Llynfi Valley over the past 100 years. From images of the town hall and chapels - where the first performance of the Welsh national Anthem was sung at the Old Tabor Welsh Calvinistic Chapel in 1856 - to scenes representing the industrial heritage of the area, including mining for coal and tin and the blast furnaces as the Llynfi Works, Maesteg documents the vanished world of this once-bustling valley. An important pictorial record of this fascinating area of South Wales, this book will delight those who want to know more about the history of Maesteg and evoke memories of a bygone time for those who have lived here.
