Books Info:

Llanelli Through Time free pdf The largest town in the county of Carmarthenshire, Llanelli has a long and illustrious history. This book draws on an assortment of some 200 old maps, prints and photographs to illustrate the transformation of Llanelli from a small medieval hamlet and fishing village on the sea shore of the Burry Estuary, through a period of renown as the centre of the world's tinplate industry, to its present-day importance as a thriving commercial and industrial town. Coal mining, smelting and shipping established the town's industrial heritage before it became known as 'Tinopolis'. Today, tinplate is still manufactured at Trostre Works, one of the most modern plants in Europe, while Llanelli also has claim to fame as the home of the famous Scarlets rugby club. Llanelli Through Time is an essential volume for anyone who knows and loves this proud Welsh town.
