This was originally published back in 1989 by the Dyfed Cultural Services Department. It has been published now again in the year 2000 by Budding Books, an imprint of Sutton Publishing Ltd, the ISBN number is 1-84015-157-9, price £9.99.

I remember seeing the original book in the local library some years ago and in it are over a hundred and fifty pages of lovely old photographs covering the area around St Dogmaels, Cardigan, Aberporth, Tresaith, Cilgerran, Llechryd, Llandygwydd, Boncath, Abercych, Cenarth, Newcastle Emlyn, Rhydlewis and Drefach Felindre. Names of people in photographs are given to many instances and it is fascinating to see the unchanging features of some places like Cenarth bridge while others, like Plas Llysnewydd, are gone for evermore. An interesting book for anyone with links to the Lower Teifi area. In line with County Council's language policy the text accompanying the pictures was written in both Welsh and English, which is very helpful for the keen Welsh learners amongst you!
