|Pontypool: Memories 1929 - 1947|
Author: David Hughes
The reminiscences of a local lad growing up in and around Pontypool during the difficult years of the Depression and Second World War.
Truly, this is a veritable treasure trove of the social history of the area.
The reader is given a fascinating and endearing insight through the keen eyes of a youngster eager to learn and better himself, and who with determination went on to become a school teacher and ultimately travel the globe.
The author recounts his school days with affection, the characters so typical of mining communities within the area, the games that boys used to play in their youthful innocence, the tragic accidents which were all to prevalent, and the influence of religion upon impressionable minds.
Surely, a well-written and fitting testimony to a forgotten way of South Wales Valley life.
