During the 1970s the coal and steel industries that provided much of the employment in Wales were shrinking, and – despite social progress and increasing prosperity – regeneration and improvement of the built environment was slow to come. This thoughtful and thought-provoking collection of black-and-white photographs includes images from all over Wales, and is notable for a sense of decline and neglect in studies of iconic national subjects such as coal mines, steam railways, seaside resorts, and Nonconformist churches and chapels.
