Gower Peninsula by David Gwynn
Book DescriptionThis compilation of over 200 evocative images traces some of the changes that have taken place in this unique area over the last century. While for many the Gower Peninsula is indicative of beaches on hot summer days, walks in the woods or across the cliff tops of surfing, the area is also home to many people who live and work in this beautiful place. The reader is taken on a tour of Gower as it was before the internal combustions engine came to dominate everyday families and communities worked together for the benefit and enrichment of all. Each image is accompanied by supporting text providing a wealth of local colour and historical detail. This comprehensive pictorial record will re-awaken memories among older residents, whilst bringing to newcomers an opportunity to look at how things used to be.

Books By Author David Gwynn
Gwynedd: Inheriting a Revolution, Paperback (November 2007)
A history of Gwynedd
Sketty, Paperback (October 2004)
Sketty remained a small village until the nineteenth century, when a number of Swansea's most prominent citizens established themselves in the area. This rural isolation was further eroded as Swansea's westward expansion first touched and then engulfed the village.
Mumbles, Paperback (April 2003)» View all books by David Gwynn
The famous Mumbles area of Swansea is no a thriving and popular suburb, with pretty villages and attractive bays. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the need for a railway to transport coal and iron ore to Swansea meant that the once-distant fishing communities became more accessible.
