Archive of the month

The Archive of the Month feature raises awareness amongst students and staff about the variety of material that we hold. In particular, the old Bangor photographs appear to spark a lot of interest and debate on the University’s Facebook pages.

Every month, an item is selected to be showcased. The item is scanned and a short piece of text written about its history.

Photograph of the summit of Snowdon

Amongst the uncatalogued papers of Brigadier Arthur Pelham Trevor (1909-1984) of Beaumaris there is a photograph album that once belonged to an ancestor of his of the name Enviqueta Bokenham Trevor. This particular photograph from the album stands out since it was possibly taken before the construction of the Snowdon Mountain Railway which opened in 1896. Prior to this date, ponies used to take tourists to the summit.
