The images on this page (and page 2 and 3) are kindly shared with us from the collection of Ann and Roy Rowlands in Australia. Roy Rowlands was - proudly - born in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The history of Blaenau Ffestiniog and the surrounding areas are closely associated with the slate industry - and continues to be to this day. Slate mining was a cruel but hard way to eke a living, and too many slate miners lost their lives making others rich.
