During the 1970s, people in Wales had to face up to big changes to jobs, housing, transportation and many other aspects to daily life. Mines and mills were closing-but at the same time people were, on average, getting richer, and new technologies were starting to make an impact on traditional drudgery in homes, factories and offices. Richard Gaunt's previously unpublished photographs take us back to that era, with stark beautiful images of places and people taken during this turbulent decade. They cover not just the redundant steelworks and closed mines, but also older people having fun on holiday and youngsters making their own amusements on demolition sites. This unique book will trigger all kinds of nostalgia for those who remember Wales in the 1970s, but its appeal goes much wider and will include those with an interest in wider British social and economic history, and anyone who enjoys dramatic black and white images of everyday life in Britain nearly half a century ago,
