Friends of Swansea Your Story
0pen Days –  Sunday 19th May and 16th June 2013        

11 am till 3 pm     
The Discovery Room, Swansea Central Library.             

For the Heritage Lottery Funded project: ‘Swansea, a Town and City in Photographs’

Members will be on hand to chat with anyone interested in the project and Gather information Photographs etc* for use in the forthcoming exhibitions and made available to others interested in Swansea History.
Anyone with memories photographs or films in fact anything relating to Swansea past that they would like to share and have preserved for the future, should bring them along.
*Memories will be record photographs and items copied and returned.
 
We have to preserve photographs for future generations, it is sad that often following a person’s death, collections stored not only in the persons memory but photographs and artefacts telling the story of their life and their unique perspective on the history of an area are lost. We must talk to the older generation and learn their stories while we can. We want to make sure that these pictures are saved and preserved for future generations. Swansea your Story is asking people when discarding old photographs to consider donating them to our archive. Sometimes what appears to be simply a family snap is actually an important social record of times gone by and of places that no longer exist.

On the 16th of June there will be a Talk at 2pm entitled ‘Let Me entertain you’,a history of entertainment and entertainers in Swansea, from the Band of Hope the early Circus, Theatres and Cinema’s.

All welcome
