Look back at bygone Swansea with rare colour and black and white film sequences from the 1910s to the 1970s. Highlights include a number of historic royal visits, the closure of the Mumbles Railway, the last days of the railway to Pontardulais in 1964, Richard Burton recounting Dylan Thomas and the opening of Swansea Airport by Douglas Bader in 1957.

The royal visits were made by Queen Mother in 1959, the Queen in 1965 and the Prince of Wales for the granting of City status in 1969. You will also see the building of the East Side Road in the early 1950s, the female cocklers of Penclawdd. and much more!
