A poem dedicated to the Cape Horners of Swansea, those brave seamen who risked life and limb sailing to Valparaiso in Chile with their cargoes of coal long before the Panama Canal was built

This old picture of Swansea could have been taken yesterday,

except when you look at all the ships in the bay, and in the mouth of the river, one thing stands out, Sails and more Sails.

to fix this, please had a small comment to this post. ?

Nice pic, thanks. I see it is signed by the architect Percy Thomas. I guess that must have been an 'artists impression' before it was built, as I see there is no clock, was this there when first built or was it added later?

Hi Mate

I think you are right about it being a sketch before the actual build, so I've included a pic of the guildhall 1935.
