Ystradgynlais History Articles

From the South Wales Voice newspaper of 20th May 1933, comes this article about ex-servicemen forced to live in shacks, known as "the caves" in a dingle by the Penrhos brick works. It was the height of the Great Depression and they argued that their unemployment benefit did not leave enough money for both the going rate of rent in the district, and to eat well enough to be able to take up a job if one were offered.
