Wales of OldClick on the daffodil to return to my Welsh Family History Archive.
The picture above, taken around 1910, shows a coal delivery at Long Row, Blaenllechau near Ferndale.
The picture shows the opening ceremony of the Eisteddfod at Treorchy in 1928. The bald-headed gentleman raising the Welsh flag is David Davies (later Lord Davies of Llandinam), mine-owning philanthropist. He was the grandson of David Davies, of Llandinam, one of the great Welsh pioneers of the Rhondda coalfield, and founder in 1887 of the Ocean Coal Company.
