Llyn Classics

(III)

Every once in a while we come across stunning photographs taken of the Llyn Peninsula and it's people. They range from family portraits to landscapes, village scenes and agriculture, and we will be bringing you the best of them on this page.

When the school at Nant Gwrtheyrn closed down in 1945, all the school's inventory was taken up the steep hill to Llithfaen the nearest village. And this classic image shows Ken Earp, and Bobi Hughes, using a horse and sledge, to take the very last load.

Rhiw Tea Party in 1903

Residents of Rhiw enjoying a tea party, we hope one day to find out what the big occasion was. We recognise some people from other photographs on the website. Front row far left, the Rhiw school master, back row centre, Mrs Mary Williams, Fron Oleu, and in front of her slightly to the right, one of the ladies from Talafon.

Many thanks to Mr, John Jones, for this amazing image.
