Taking in personal and public life, this book offers a social history of the neighbouring communities that now form the city and, with great good humour and affection, the reminiscences preserve the memory of people and places long forgotten.
THROUGH the reminiscences of local people, accompanied by around 100 photographs, this volume remembers the Cardiff of yesteryear. From the town as it was in the 1920s and '30s to the city it became in 1955 and beyond, stories and memories from the local community are recorded here, providing a lasting memorial to Cardiff's history. Taking in personal and public life, it offers a social history of the neighbouring communities that now form the city and, with great good humour and affection, the reminiscences preserve the memory of people and places long forgotten. In their own words Cardiff people tell us about the way that they have lived their lives and the conditions in which they have lived through over the past one hundred years. This excellent volume of memories and photographs paints a revealing picture of life in Cardiff over the past century, revealing a period of immense change that will fascinate readers both young and old.
