Robert Haines - Once Upon A Time In Wales

Just bought this book: collection of portraits from a mining community in Wales, taken around 1971. Fascinating characters, living a tough life. Heartbreaking photos from another age: i wonder what's left of this village near Merthyr Tyfdil, once named Iron Capital of the World.

You can buy the book here

  1. Heolgerrig (Stone Street) is still there, but as Merthyr grew it's now become part of (or suburb)of Merthyr.

  2. Thanks for the news, Al! Outstanding book! Makes me want to pay visit to yr country.
