Booklet: 'Dathlu Canmlwyddiant y Wladfa, Patagonia - 'Mimosa''



This booklet was published in 1965 to commemorate the sailing of 150 Welsh people on the tea clipper ‘Mimosa’ from Liverpool to Patagonia in Argentina. The Welsh emigrants set sail for Argentina in 1865 to create a Welsh speaking colony where Welsh culture could thrive. In this they were successful and the legacy of the early Welsh settlements continues in Argentinian cities such as Puerto Madryn.
