Though it was constructed in 1796, it was in the early twentieth century that it became a thriving industrial area. Spacious streets were built alongside a river, and then two railways and a canal arrived. In later years the M4 motorway, a large hospital, and the DVLA have all made an impact. In the fast-growing town little exists to suggest that Morriston has a history, and its people are in need of a look back to the way things once were. This absorbing collection of previously unpublished photographs sets the peaceful old town against the larger present-day town, and informative captions explain what events have taken place over the years. The book will interest anyone who lives, or has lived, in the area.
