Are you in this photograph? Or do you recognize someone who is? Do you remember where or when this was taken? Or how things have changed?
As part of the National Library's Outreach in Blaenau Ffestiniog photographs from the library's collection taken by Gwilym Livingstone Evans of Blaenau Ffestiniog are being re-visited, and we want your help to add information to the images. A handful of images are being released through People's Collections Wales to ask for your help.
If you have any memories of these photographs why not share it with us by leaving a comment?

Mrs McShane was my aunt. She was headmistress in Tanygrisiau and then the girls primary school in Maenofferen before moving to the co-ed school.

Others I recogise/remember - Merfyn Jones (loved his cricket!!!) he is far right in back row. Owen Edwards (head) was also the head in the boys school. Staunch labour!! And I have never ever left an open "o" after he taught us handwriting in ink :-) Great teacher though. next to merfyn (who eventually became deputy head I believe) is Sylvia ann Jones. She was the pianist for the choir for many years. I was in the oakley Band with her husband, Dafydd Noel.
