Swansea in the 60s

Phil Treseder returned to give us one of his interesting illustrated talks about Swansea in the 60s. What a shame that most of our members who were there, couldn't make it on the day. So Phil was talking to outsiders. But it was interesting for us non locals to see how Swansea used to be and compare it to what we know today and to compare it to where we all lived in the 60s. They do say if you remember the 60s you weren't there, but this was about bricks and mortar, rebuilding and city centre planning after all the damage caused by World War II.
Bomb damage was extensive, but as in all other cities in UK, it gave the chance to replan and rebuild.




Swansea is now a vibrant modern city, constantly changing to meet the needs of its people.
