This 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.
