Tales of an Aber Lad

David Lloyd has done us all a favour by writing these delightful reminiscences which will remind natives of this ancient borough that there is no place like Aberystwyth, and fill those benighted readers unfortunate enough to have been born elsewhere with entirely proper envy.”
Herbert Williams
- Author and broadcaster
Tales of an Aber Lad is not intended to be a book on local history but it will make an excellent gift for many local people, especially those in exile from this fascinating town.”
Gerald Morgan
- Head teacher and lecturer
My father loved this book. It really took him down memory lane and took me back to the many holidays spent with the family in Aberystwyth.”

- Amazon Customer Review
Lloyd's engaging narrative reveals the Aberystwyth of his earliest years which he has highlighted with a well-chosen combination of photographs, posters and newspaper clippings.”

This is a charming book. David Lloyd has recaptured the innocence of childhood perfectly. Do buy it if you were a child in the 40s and 50s. It will bring back so many memories.”
