The Carmarthenshire Historian

From the topic SamuelPepysCockerell:

The Tenby public baths were Cockerell's first and last public building in Wales and he accepted no further commissions here. The body of his work in this country, always small and confined mainly to Carmarthenshire, has now been reduced almost to nothing. It would be a pity if all record of this fine architect's achievment should be entirely lost and it is hoped that this article may help to rescue Samuel Pepys Cockerell and his work in West Wales from the near oblivion into which they have faded.

From the topic TributeToAnHistorian:

Driven by devotion rather than the hope of material reward

From the Editorial in Volume 1:

This magazine is an attempt to stimulate interest in Local History; to encourage you to take a greater and deeper interest in the life of your village, your community and your county; to inspire you to find out what motives, fears and desires actuated our predecessors.
I should like to express my sincere thanks to the authors of the articles published in this booklet. They responded willingly to the appeal of the Local History Committee of the Community Council and, as proof of their passionate love of this subject, they have given their services free of charge.
