The photographer Tudur Owen, from Croesor, has presented a series of pictures dating back to 1964 to the Plaid Cymru History Society. Among the photographs are the Adoption Meeting of Elystan Morgan as a candidate in 1964, celebrations in the Plaid Cymru conference in 1966 following Gwynfor Evans’ by-election breakthrough, the Rhondda West and Caerffili campaigns of 1967 and 1968 and Dafydd Wigley’s campaign in Meirionnydd in 1970.
Plaid History Chair Dafydd Williams said, “This collection is a substantial addition to the archive and its great to see all the activity and buzz of the 1960s era brought to life in these photos.
“It’s interesting to see the presence of Winnie Ewing and a contingent of friends from the SNP in these images, in several memorable campaigns – a sure sign of the ties between our two national movements over the years.
“We are truly grateful to Tudur Owen for presenting this collection.”
