29th December
Patagonian settlers building a road to the Andes, near 'Afon y Mynach' in 1888. In the middle wearing a white coat stands Llwyd ap Iwan (son of Michael D Jones, founder of the Welsh settlement in Patagonia), who was murdered on the 29th December, 1909, some say by Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid but more probably by members of their gang. He was shot dead in the co-operative store, of which he was supervisor, close to his home at Nant y Pysgod, about thirty miles from Esquel in the foothills of the Andes.
