Could someone indicate, if possible, where Gomerian Place would be situated on this photograph? I believe that it is in this area..

Hi Woodruff,



unfortunately, I cannot help you there. However, have you thought about asking your question to the members of the Old Swansea group? They seem to me a very knowledgeable lot. Just become a member of the group, then come back to this photo and click on 'Add to ...', select the group and post your question.



Good luck with your research!

Someone posted on another site, that Gomerian Place, was a Court, roughly where BHS, now stands.

As I'm writing this BHS, is in the process of closing down.

Between the northern end of Princess Way, and the service lane behind M&S.
