Local historian Goronwy Davies has done a great job of documenting Abergele’s agricultural history with his book “A brief History of the Markets and Fairs at Abergele North Wales”. There are some lovely old photos and the accounts of the visits to the town by the Royal Welsh Show, including lists of local prizewinners, show the huge research effort made. I’m not sure where this book is available to buy, so if you’re reading this and you know where to get hold of a copy, please use the comments form at the bottom of this page to let other AbergelePost readers know.
Now you see it…
… now you don’t:
Site of the old Jones Brothers garage, then Slaters, flattened for development and photographed by Sion Jones in 2012 or 2013. Jones Bros sold tractors and cars in Llanrwst, Rhuthin and Abergele.
Cwmni Jones Bros. oedd yn gwerthu tractorai a cheir, cyn iddynt orffen eu busnes yn Llanrwst, Abergele a Rhuthun. Prynwyd yr adeilad gan Slaters a bu hwythau yn gwerthu ceir yma am ryw chwarter canrif. Gwerthwyd y tir i gymdeithas tai.
