Aberystwyth VoicesAberystwyth Voices (Tempus Oral History) This evocative and often humorous compilation of reminiscences records life as it used to be in Aberystwyth from the middle decades of the twentieth century. A comprehensive and fascinating view of the life is depicted. The excitement of going to the silent films, dances with Evered Davies' band, the influx of evacuees during the war and drinking in the Glue Pot, are just a few of the many memories included. Tour Aberystwyth.

Aberystwyth and North Ceredigion in Old PhotographsAberystwyth and North Ceredigion in Old Photographs (Britain in Old Photographs) Aberystwyth and North Ceredigion in Old Photographs. This addition to the "Britain in Old Photographs" series brings together a collection of black-and-white pictures spanning the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Drawn from family albums, local collections and professional photographers, they show the way things were and how they have changed. Every photograph is captioned, providing names and dates where possible, revealing historical and anecdotal detail and giving life to the scenes and personalities captured through the camera lens. Bringing together all aspects of daily life - celebrations and disasters, work and leisure, people and buildings - the collection should inspire memories, as well as serve as an introduction to visitors.

The University College of WalesThe University College of Wales,Aberystwyth: 1872-1972 The University College of Wales, Aberystwyth (the 'College by the Sea', as it has always been known affectionately in Wales), is the senior constituent of the federal University of Wales, and indeed, one of the older provincial university institutions in the United Kingdom. It is a great romantic story that is always interesting, often exciting, and occasionally dominated by high controversy. The central theme is a long, desperate, but ultimately successful, struggle against adversity; the story has its fair share of heroic characters, of dominating (occasionally eccentric) personalities, and, most important, of outstanding academic figures who made valuable contributions to knowledge in the many different university disciplines. This book is an important contribution to the history of modern Wales.

Carmarthenshire and CeredigionCarmarthenshire and Ceredigion (Pevsner Buildings of Wales) This volume of the Buildings of Wales series covers two counties, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion, formerly Cardiganshire, in the South-west of Wales. Like the same authors' Pembrokeshire, the volume covers an architecture still little known, but encompassing a sweep from prehistoric chambered tombs to the high technology of the world's largest single-span glasshouse. The two counties have deeply rural hinterlands shading into wild and empty upland, bare of settlements but rich in the relics of lost industry. The isolated churches and nonconformist chapels are given knowledgeable attention in the comprehensive gazetteer, which gives full coverage to the magnificent castles of Carmarthenshire. There are detailed accounts of the varied small towns of the two counties, from formal late-Georgian Aberaeron to the quiet charm of Laugharne, winding down to its estuary. Aberystwyth with its promenade, university and National Library, joins industrial Llanelli and county-town Carmarthen in the wealth and variety of its late Victorian chapels. An introduction with valuable specialist contributions sets the buildings in context.
