A view of Mr T. J. Lloyd's premises, Bank House, Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant along with the adjacent branch of the North & South Wales Bank. The white-haired gentleman in front of the shop is believed to be Mr. Lloyd with his daughter Eirian. The other two gentlemen are believed to be bank staff.

Bridge End, Llanrhaiadr, looking west.

Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant with the Plough Inn (landlord E.J. Hughes) on the left. On the right can be seen an enamelled sign advertising Home & Colonial Tea. In the 1911 census Edward John Hughes aged 48 is listed as the landlord of the Plough Inn.

E. C. Burns.

Bronilog, Llansilin.

View of a large two storey house set among trees. The house has a distinctive veranda running the length of the front and is approached along a straight driveway. Although spelt 'Bronilog' on the original enclosure, should this read 'Bronheulog'?

Glass negatives, the majority of views in and around Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant during the first decade of the twentieth century. The original numbering system (1, 2, 2a, 3 etc.) has been retained with the prefix JPJ added. Many were used to produce collotype postcards, information relating to the production of which are noted on the original storage envelopes. Some of these also credit the photographer as being E.C Burns, who is listed in the 1911 census as a shopkeeper and photographer. The inscriptions on the envelopes seem to act as a template for the wording on the postcards, consequently it is likely that E.C. Burns was responsible for all the photographs.


[Crowd wearing rosettes outside the Plough Inn, Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant]

A crowd of men, all wearing suits, bowler hats and rosettes outside the Plough Inn, Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant. The licensee's name is D. Humphreys. The licensee's name appears to have been hastily added to a pre-existing sign board suggesting he only recently took the premises over. Possibly connected with a general election.
