Waterfront Museum, Swansea - 19th April 2008

Following our trip north to Dolgellau, we moved back south to the National Waterfront Museum in Swansea. The public were ‘warmed-up’ for this event by Jen Wilson and Women in Jazz, who certainly made the place swing! The show was organised to coincide with the presentation of the Anti-Suffrage Doll that our own tireless Paulette Pelosi ruthlessly tracked down.  Again this was a different event – over 514 people visited the Museum that day and I guess about 40 plus came specifically to see us. Although we did not have a huge amount of people attending, we certainly saw items of quality and that is the watchword for this event. We saw, midwives registers and apparatus,

items from the peace movement and a pair of Land Army breeches as well as the ring that belonged to Rhodri Morgan’s Mum – supposedly ornamented with a stone made from ‘snake spit’.

Her other son, Professor Prys Morgan told Deirdre that there were white witches in the family and this ring had passed on as part of family  folklore.
