The above image is kindly shared with us from the collection of Mr Gareth Jenkins. Gareth writes: "This is a photograph of a male voice choir that I always thought was the Treorchy Male Voice Choir, but was advised that the photo was taken in front of a civic building in Treherbert. My Grandad Tom Jenkins - who was a miner - died before I was born, but I know he sang with them. My grandfather is the little guy in the front 1st row of seats 6th in from the right hand side.

Problem solved by Mr. Dean Powell of the Treorchy Male Voice Choir, who writes: I can confirm that it isn’t TMC I’m afraid, however, I do believe it’s the Treherbert Male Voice Party.

The building looks very much like Treherbert Constitutional Club, close to the village railway station. It was formed by the famous Moses Owen Jones (1842-1908), a Caernarfonshire born chorusmaster who moved to Treherbert as Precentor for Carmel Chapel. He also formed the Carmel Mixed Choir and they gave the first performance in the Rhondda of Handel’s Messiah in 1876.

Your image shows Howell Howells as Conductor, I assume the solitary lady is the accompanist, or possible a soprano soloist.

Treherbert is Welsh for Herbert's town - the Tre being short for Tref / Dref - the welsh word for town.
