Gorseinon Rugby Ground site - Date not known

Photograph kindly submitted by Gladys Spencer - October 2009

Further information kindly submitted by Steve Culliford 4th Dec 2009
The building on the left is the Gorseinon Institute on Lime Street. The chimneys therefore must be
in the vicinity of where Somerfield is now (near to the Mardy Hotel, on Cecil Road/Mill Street).
The Bryngwyn Works chimney is (was – gone now) much further to the right.
I remember some sort of industrial site where Somerfield stands when
I moved to Gorseinon in 1980 but there is no sign of any of it now.

I wonder what was happening for this photo to be taken? I can’t see any girls in the photo!

NB. Can anyone else reveal some more information about this fascinating photograph?
If so, please email Jeff Davies - Thanks

Crime Squad 1972



This photograph is framed and behind it is written the price - 1/6
An interesting photograph of John Thomas's (2084) uncle.
He was apparently based in Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire and one of
his duties was to walk in front of the parade at the annual carnival.
He was so worried about it that he died of a heart attack,
either the day before or after the parade.

Old Swansea Borough Police Band in the Green Room at the Guildhall, Swansea
Prior to the annual concert at the Brangwym Hall - taken early 1960's.


The photograph displays a number of police officers in the band but by this time, a number of officers 
who joined in the 1930s, and were army trained, had retired. It was therefor necessary to augment
the band with a number of civilians who were provided with uniforms for performances.
Shortly after this concert, the band was disbanded.
