Visit to The Mezzanine St Clears

  1. 1. An elderly couple originally from St. Clears but now based in Spain made a special visitto see a photographic exhibition documenting St. Clears and the surrounding villagesover the last 100 years. Irfon and Glenys Walters now in their eighties drove more than1,000 miles one way to visit friends and view the exhibition. Irfon has been keeping intouch with life in St. Clears through the community website www.stclearstimes.com Thecouple identified a number of relatives in the photographs and were able to pass onstories of the village when they were young. Irfon offered a £20 prize for anyone whocould identify all of the men in a photograph of a farmer’s outing to a factory in Bristol.His father was amongst the men and Irfon would love to know all the names. He said thatSt. Clears was very fortunate to have such a rich photographic legacy for futuregenerations to share and commended the curator Mrs. Stella for all the hard work that hasgone into preserving the photographs, film and historic documents. The photographs areon display at The Mezzanine on Bridge Street, St. Clears. Local historian Alan Evanspresented Mr. And Mrs. Walters with a book about the village of St. Clears and copies ofthe St. Clears Times magazines.
