This old picture of Swansea could have been taken yesterday,
except when you look at all the ships in the bay, and in the mouth of the river, one thing stands out, Sails and more Sails.
Oxford Street, Swansea. 1921.
High Street East, Swansea.
Please excuse the doubler, but I can not find a way to edit
or remove the older ones, if there is anyone who knows how
to fix this, please had a small comment to this post. ?
Swansea Sands 1910.
Mumbles Train at the Swansea Slip.
Swansea Civic Centre 1935.
I notice that the tower does not yet have its famous clock??
I think you are right about it being a sketch before the actual build, so I've included a pic of the guildhall 1935.
Nice pic, thanks. I see it is signed by the architect Percy Thomas. I guess that must have been an 'artists impression' before it was built, as I see there is no clock, was this there when first built or was it added later?
