Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful series of photographs. So often you look at photographs of people in books without knowing anything about them. In this book there are little anecdotes about all the people featured. You also get a strong feeling of intimacy with the subjects which I suspect came from the fact that the photographer was part of the community and not a casual visitor looking in from the outside. The photographs are beautiful and the sense of history encapsulated within the books pages engrossing. Good value and highly recommended!!

Format: Hardcover
A snapshot of a Wales long gone. The tales and the images offer a tender glimpse on a gallery of characters from a community that is no more, but whose likes we are all familar with. A pleasure to own.

Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic book, looking at real life pictures from the seventies. It's the type of book you can read over and over again and really enjoy the pictures that seem to come to life as you look at them.
