Thanks very interesting but did you actually get to the photographs themselves or just a list of them? I can't seem to get to the actual images and they are listed as slides which probably explains why.

Cheers

Open the link, then for example open the Gwynfynydd link.
Go to the botom of that post and see " Archive Associated Sites Details" click where it says images 4.

Hmm ... perhaps I was a little hasty ...

I've just had another look at the RCAHMW site and I think Jon is correct that the online images are not those from the Colin Guile collection.

Still, it's good to know the Guile photos are available, even if it means a trip to Aberystwyth to see them.
