Real Swansea free pdf A tour of the obvious and the oblique, the monumental and the downright quirky, this guide to Swansea explores and uncovers the eclectic, gritty, whimsical, and rich history of the city in postindustrial south Wales. Once a dynamic and thriving imperial port and later famous for a vibrant artistic life, Nigel Jenkins combines civic and social history with his own autobiographical reminiscences, bringing to life a place which mixes Dylan Thomas's heritage with rugby and football passions and the natural beauty of the Bay and the Gower with the dereliction of the industrial valley. There is no better way to discover Wales' second city.
