To see ourselves as others see us...

Nanty Glo, Pa., on display in Nantyglo/Blaina, Wales

Trevor Rowson, the official historian of Nantyglo-Blaina, Wales, sent the following photographs taken at an exhibition featuring Nanty Glo, Pennsylvania, at the Nantyglo and Blaina, Wales, council offices in March. The exhibit consisted of photographs, articles, and momentoes of Nanty Glo, Pa.

He wrote: “I thought you would like to see them.

“I have some more if you wish to view them; you can also use these pictures on the nantyglo web site if you wish.

“The exhibition lasted 1 week and was a great success.”

Trevor hosted my brother and me in a tour of his area last October. A reciprocal exhibition about the Welsh former coalmining and iron production center north of Cardiff, Wales' capitol, in our Nanty Glo is in the planning stages. —jon kennedy
