New book reflects on Swansea

A new book looking back at the history of Swansea has been compiled by South Wales Evening Post journalist David Roberts.

Reflections of Swansea is the fourth in a successful series covering life in the city in the past 120 years, and contains more than 400 photographs, most of which are previously unpublished.

The pictures chronicle many memorable events and include a multitude of pictures depicting the changes that Swansea went through in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, including the complete reconstruction of large areas of the city centre.

In a foreword, Evening Post editor George Edwards praised the book, and said: “The pictures in Reflections of Swansea will breathe new life into many moments from the past.”

The new book is the seventh pictorial nostalgia book complied by David, the Evening Post’s consumer editor, and with 30 years experience in South Wales journalism, including 25 years at the Evening Post, he is now stranger to the region.

He said: “The people of Swansea are proud of their history. This fascinating series of books allows everyone to have a record of that.”
