Swansea---Photographer's-dream-thumbPastel headscarves shelter from the grey Welsh sky, monochrome children play in silted puddles in the shadows of abandoned factories.
Colin Riddle’s images capture a lost period in post-war Swansea.
A record of a town in transition to treasure.

In ‘Swansea – A photographer’s Dream’ Colin Riddle’s pictures of Swansea in the 1960s represent images of a lost age, and though much of what he photographed still exists for the keen historian to seek out, much has also disappeared.

“a brilliant evocation of a British townscape at what was for some a moment of social and cultural transition.” Peter Stead
