‘Metal’: The History of Wales in 100 Pictures

Last year I contributed three short articles for the Western Mail/Wales Online’s Welsh History Month, which was based on the theme ‘the history of Wales in 100 pictures’. I was invited to write a short commentary on three pictures relating to the metal industries in Wales, including a magnificent photograph of Port Talbot’s steelworks. The articles, which also included a piece on Merthyr Tydfil’s iron industry and the lower Swansea valley, are available online (follow the links below!).
