Glamorgan, Hirwaun, Tower Colliery Lamproom c.1970.
webmaster's note: One of my great grandfathers lived in Hirwaun
during the 19th century, so it is reasonable to believe that he
would have worked at the Tower Colliery, which opened in 1869.
He later moved down to the Rhondda Valleys, where he spent the
rest of his working life down the colliery.
Another of my great
grandfathers - John Harris - was a colliery repairer, a particularly
dangerous job, and he lost his life down the National Colliery
in Wattstown; - he was aged
daughters, and another daughter was born soon after he died.
for the places where your ancestors spent their lives can be interesting and rewarding, and I hope you will return time and time again to
this website, which is constantly being added to and updated. If you have any high resolution old photos of your cities, towns, villages,
hamlets or family, and would like to share them with us please
email them here.
