Note: John Edwards tells Lomax the story of his arrival in Treorchy at 7 years old, his subsequent shipment back to the América-fach (Little America) section in his hometown of Porth, and his work in the mines there. The chronology and story get confused when he discusses moving to Trehebert, back to Treorchy, etc. He explains the process of extracting and loading coal and tells a story of a mine fire.
