<Mathias, Idris. Last of the Mwldan. Gomer, Llandysul. (1 85902 428 9).Gomer
catalogue 2002;- "Mwldan lies on the lower side of Cardigan town. Once it
was the home of sea captains, sailors, fishermen, foundrymen, poachers,
preachers and sailmakers. It was the life and soul of Cardigan, those many
years ago. " So begins this remarkable and moving memoir by Idris Mathias,
one who calls himself the last of the Mwldan because he and his family were
among the very last to leave their homes in Foundry Court in the slum
clearance of 1937.
Heulwen was asking about Mwldan last week, the above entry copied from
Gomer's 2002 Catalogue which arrived today.
Lots of fascinating books, but my wife has confiscated my credit card :-)
