Brecon Library - staff

Sally and Ann, staff at Brecon library, share a joke

We are very grateful to Chris Price, chief librarian, and members of his staff for all their help and support with this exhibition , Children of Craig-y-nos.

As Dr Carole Reeves, Outreach Historian with the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine, University College London, said in her opening remarks:"This is a world first. There are no records anywhere of life inside a TB sanatorium."

What makes this exhibition particularly poignant is that the majority of the photographs were taken by the children and teenagers themselves.
