Nestled on Wales' west coast, Cardiganshire is a county of stunning natural beauty ranging from sandy beaches nestled in a picturesque landscape to views of imposing mountains to the north. The area has provided inspiration for many creative minds through the ages, including the poet Dylan Thomas, who was a resident for many years. With a rich history going back to Roman times, the county has a fascinating story to tell. Author Pam Fudge invites the reader on a journey through historic South Cardiganshire, beautifully illustrated with photographs and postcards produced by her grandfather Harry Squibbs, a local photographer working in the first half of the 1900s. This first volume provides a glimpse of the different processes he, as a second generation photographer, used in a time of great change in photography and postcard production. His record of life in the communities around his home comes to life through his photographs and postcards, accompanied by historical and anecdotal information. This book is essential reading for anyone who knows and loves this historic county and for those with an interest in photographic and postcard production at that time.
