A glimpse into 1950s Swansea
THE fashions have changed, the cars are now vintage and the streets are no longer as quite as they were then.
These black and white photographs of the Swansea area provide a glimpse into life in 1950s Swansea.
Robert Rees, 55, reminisces of a time when his dad, Richard John Rees, would keenly photograph the local transportation and people of Pontardawe, in a time when not many people owned a camera.
Robert, who has recently unearthed the photographs, said: "Dad started taking pictures in 1937 and would develop and print them himself. He was an avid photographer and liked taking pictures of trains and buses."
