This fascinating collection of more than 200 photographs illustrates scenes and events in Porth and the surrounding villages. Following the authors' previous two volumes on the area, this one places particular emphasis on industry, work and community. The book provides a pictorial history of this old town and highlights Thomas & Evans soft drink bottling works which had been in operation under this name since the nineteenth century and since then Corona has been a household name. Beechams bought out the company in 1958 and is still using the Corona name. Through the medium of photography the book captures the essence of life in the Rhondda as it used to be. The photographs in this book have been borrowed from various sources over a number of years and the authors thank all the people who have given their help. This endearing collection provides an unparalleled insight into Porth and its environs and gives a glimpse of the area and the people who live there, at work and also at leisure. The authors have constructed a book that will provide older residents with a nostalgic look at the recent past and bring newcomers and the young an opportunity to look at how things used to be.
