Dear Class31, thank you for your extremely helpful comments, we have looked at your suggestions and agree with you, Ynysboeth and Pont Cynon are far more relevant labels for this image.

we have since amended the description to better suit the content. Thank you again for your continued enthusiasm with the project.

This image is about seven miles South of the map reference given. It does not show the town of Merthyr Tydfil but shows Ynysboeth and Pont Cynon in the foreground which are now in Rhondda, Cynon, Taff administrative area. The community in the middle distance is Edwardsville which is in the Merthyr Tydfil administrative area.

It is misleading to describe this image as a general view of Merthyr Tydfil. The NGR given appears to be a gereric one given for a number of photos of the Merthyr area and is in fact a map reference for The Grove in Merthyr Tydfil which is about seven miles North of the centre of this image.

In the foreground we see Pont Cynon and Ynysboeth. The other side of the Cynon Valley shows the road which is now the A4059.

Over the ridge we are in the Taff Valley with the prominent Quakers Yard viaduct of the Great Western Railway and Rhymney Railway Joint Railway from Quakers Yard to Merthyr Tydfil. Quaker's Yard Station is to the right of the viaduct serving Edwardsville. In the distance the views are towards Cwm Bargoed.
