Before about 1930, our family photos were formal and posed. They commemorated significant family occasions and entailed a visit to Edwards of Fishguard and presumably some considerable expense.
Then someone acquired a camera and began to take ‘holiday snaps’ and photos of special and unusual events: snow in Cwmyreglwys, for example. According to the Met Office, Pembrokeshire can expect snow only rarely – typically one day in December, one day in February and one day in March. This heavy snowfall justified a photo and here it is.
