Shared note

A Leap into Carmarthen Past (extract page 10)

In King Street, on the other side of Bank Lane, was the Journal Office, where presided Lewis Giles, editor of Wale's oldest surviving newspaper. In the print-room at the rear was a battery of lynotype machines whose robotic gestures were a perpetual fascination, yet incredibly, they would succumb to undreamed of technology. Lewis Giles and his wife, who lived in the upper floors, had been active members of the Amateur Operatic Society in their younger days. Lewis sometimes carried a monocle, which he used occasionally for careful examination. Another who wore a similar appendage was Sir Marteine Lloyd of Bronwydd, Cardiganshire, but he used it more conventionally as an accompaniment to a distinctive moustache with waxed ends of exaggerated length. These were rare and late devotees of the fashion.
