At our recent AGM we decided that we should call time on our name since our formation in the 1980s. The feeling was that Llanfyllin & District Civic Society has too many echoes of the past and not enough emphasis on present and future. Sometime in the next few months, therefore, we will be launching The Llanfyllin Society.
Magical Local Colour
The launch will give us the opportunity to present a remarkable collection of magic lantern slides that have recently come to light. The photographs on the slides were taken in and around Llanfyllin between about 1890 and 1900 and they are wonderfully and charmingly hand-tinted – the colours are as fresh as if they were taken yesterday. Dave Goodman is currently transferring the slides into a digital format that will enable them to be shown on the big screen in the Institute. This will be an event not to be missed – look out for posters nearer the date.
