More about this scene

Dolgellau was the county town of the old county of Merioneth, and is set amid the mountains which are famous for Welsh gold—the mines here provided gold for Royal wedding rings. From the mid 17th century there was a strong Quaker presence in Dolgellau. Here, shopkeepers, their families and employees pose for the photographer; note Dick's display of shoes on the right. A motor car can be seen in the centre of the picture, driven by a uniformed chauffeur.
