    I was thrilled and fascinated to come across this clip about Cardiff from Alderman Hill Snook because he is my great grandfather. I have alerted the whole family. It is especially poignant because our mother Eleanor his granddaughter died over a year ago and she would have loved to hear it. Her sister Barbara has also died as has his son William who was killed in Haifa just after the war at the age of 21. Their mother, my grandmother had to accompany my great grandfather on Mayoral visits and functions as his wife had died. We have just started looking into our family history so this piece of film is lovely to hear. He seems to have been a lovely man who I believe was very generous and bought parkland in Cardiff and gave it back to the people of the city. We have some letters that talk about this. I understand he was one of the last people to wear spats and we have a photo of him walking along the promenade wearing them!
