This enthralling collection of memories records life in the Rhondda
valleys from the late nineteenth century onwards. Drawn from a wide
variety of sources, it includes the often humorous anecdotes of
everyday life from local people, notes from the diary of a surveyor
prospecting for coal, and extracts from a log book from the
National School. All combine to create a unique picture of how life
used to be. Accompanied by over 100 old photographs, experiences
are recalled vividly; from work in the mines to celebrations and
life in the valley duing wartime. A chance to reminisce for many,
this valuble record of local history will offer newcomers an
opportunity to understand how modern Rhondda has been shaped.
