Ebbw Vale - The Works: Steel in the Blood

£24.99

Product description

From the description on the inside of the front cover:
"At a time when our environment is continually changing, it is important that we should not forget our past, which has played so vital a part in the lives of ourselves and our forbears.
Looking back today, it is hard to believe that in 1956 approximately 13,000 men and women worked at the Ebbw Vale Steelworks, then known as Richard Thomas & Baldwins. After four years of painstaking research it is pleasing to see the very professional way in which Jimmy has encapsulated so many stories into the book.
We take a colourful, sometimes tragic, sometimes tearful and often humorous walk back through the history of Ebbw Vale's Steel Works with Jimmy Murphy."

This book has been signed by its author, Jimmy Murphy, whose signature can be seen at the bottom of the first page under the Acknowledgements.

This book is in very good condition, although the covers and spine are very slightly worn, as are the pages in places (e.g. at the bottom).
