No copies of photographs can be supplied.



This was published  in  June 2000 by the Llangeler Community Council , edited by Alun L. Jones and printed by Gomer Press. There is no ISBN number.

My friend Nan Jones originally collected over 400 photographs, of which a selection was reproduced on 120 pages. These photographs celebrate the hundred years that have passed since Daniel Jones published his book in Welsh "Hanes Pwyfi Penboyr a Llangeler" about the parishes of Llangeler and Penboyr and which was reprinted in 1994 by Gomer. Since then the two parishes have been joined together and and the name of the parish is now Llangeler.

The black and white photographs show how much the life of ordinary people in West Wales changed through the twentieth century: the first picture is that of the horse-drawn Royal Mail coach at the beginning of the century near Henllan bridge. Many of the people in the photographs have been identified and named and places of work and worship as well as homes have been illustrated too.

The text accompanying the photographs is informative and fully bi-lingual and the book is obtainable from members of Llangeler Community Council
