Swansea | Wales

This multi view postcard was send to my father by a friend of his on 26 September 1975. You can see on the card the Clinic Centre, Victoria Park, Castle Gardens and Town Centre.

Swansea (Welsh: Abertawe, "mouth of the Tawe") is a coastal city and county in Wales, United Kingdom. Swansea is in the historic county boundaries of Glamorgan. Situated on the sandy South West Wales coast, the county area includes the Gower Peninsula and the Lliw uplands. Swansea is the second most populous city in Wales after Cardiff and the third most populous county in Wales after Cardiff and Rhondda Cynon Taf. During its 19th century industrial heyday, Swansea was one of the key centres of the world copper industry, earning the nickname 'Copperopolis'. To the East of St. Helen's is Victoria Park, containing bowling greens and tennis courts. For younger children, there are swings to play on. Victoria Park contains the Patti Pavilion, which serves as a village hall, and is a venue for village fêtes, pantomime, and other theatrical entertainment, as well as music gigs. [wikipedia]
