More about this scene

There is little apart from the Mini van parked in front of the terraced house on the bottom right of the picture to give away the date of this view, which looks north over Abergynolwyn. The village sits in its valley partly in the parish of Tal-y-llyn and partly in Llanfihangel. Most of its cottages would have been lived in by quarrymen, who laboured in the Bryneglwys slate quarry, long since closed.

I came to Abergynolwyn in 1962 to work at Tyny-Cornel Hotel with my brother Luis, we were very happy to work for Mr & Mrs Hunter. I'm 66 years old and I remember many times the town and my first love Gwylem Mumford, I think he became a doctor. I hope so because he was a very clever boy. Also I remember Olwen Davies, she was a chef at Tyny-Cornel. I would like to know about her. Love to all Abergynolwyn!
