This fascinating new book presents some of the events and people who have made up the life of the historic market town of Mold. From Roman times the town's strategic position ensured its regular involvement in Border warfare, while the extensive development of mining in the area during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries defined Mold as an industrial town and commercial centre. Featured here are street scenes, people at work and play, shops and businesses, pubs and hotels, transport, schools and churches. Also included are images of life in some of the surrounding villages, including Cadole, Gwernymynydd, Nercwys and Cilcain. Local author and Mold and District Civic Society archivist David Rowe has collated the history behind each scene, and here presents a fascinating snapshot of Mold in bygone days. This book is sure to bring back cherished memories of yesteryear for all who know and love this part of North Wales.
