Merthyr Tydfil is a beautiful and historically fascinating area of Wales. Rich landscapes, scenery and heritage mark out this town, which was once the iron capital of the world. The rich industrial heritage forged by ironmasters and mining has left indelible marks on the surroundings, in the form of housing, historic buildings and areas of outstanding beauty. Some buildings still stand and some areas remain as they have always looked, but in a resilient town with pride in its heritage, there are also many changes. Nothing shows the pace of change, the difference in perception and the beauty of the area like prints and photographs of that time, and the stark contrast between then and now will be clear in this collection of photographs from Merthyr Tydfil Central Library.
