51st Annual Report, Incorporated Swansea Exchange (Royal Metal Exchange) 1937-38, Anon.
2 51st Annual Report, Incorporated Swansea Exchange (Royal Metal Exchange) 1937-38 Anon.
Swansea Exchange. 1938 First Edition. Hardcover Good No Jacket 
A good 117 page hardback book, being the Fifty-First Annual Report, Statement of Accounts, List of Members etc, of the Incorporated Swansea Exchange (Royal Metal Exchange) Swansea, for the year 1937-38. Clean and tight inside, covers a little bowed, sunned and faded. Stapled binding under a cloth backstrip - staples are rusty. Ticks against various names of subscribing companies, faded company inkstamp on front cover, otherwise unmarked. Apart from the matters of the exchange, there are something like 48 pages of advertisements which emphasis how much our local economy was dependent upon metalworking industries of one kind and another. Transport ads too - did you know that in those days you could sail from Swansea to Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, the Friendly and Solomon Islands? - now, that's what I call a holiday cruise! Lots of facts and figures - one page lists tinplate exports from 1865 to 1938, making very interesting reading. Many names of individuals, a company directory etc - a very useful source for the local historian.

A brief Description and History of the Castle of Oystermouth, Written at the Request of the Mayor and Corporation of Swansea, the Owners of the Castle., W H Jones.
3 A brief Description and History of the Castle of Oystermouth, Written at the Request of the Mayor and Corporation of Swansea, the Owners of the Castle. W H Jones.
Swansea Corporation. 1930 Paperback Reading Copy No Jacket Harold Morgan. 
An A5-sized 8 page brochure. Originally held together with a single staple midway along the spine: this has now disappeared and the leaves have separated. They are however, still clean and sound with just light wear around the edges. Something written in ink below the title, but I am unable to decipher it. It looks like "with Carnarvon together" which makes no sense whatsoever. Full title is "A brief Description and History of the Castle of Oystermouth, Written at the Request of the Mayor and Corporation of Swansea, the Owners of the Castle, by W H Jones FRGS, Late hon. Archivist , Director of the Royal Institution of South Wales, Swansea with Original Sketches by Harold Morgan." Undated, but Mr Jones mentions that the castle was "bought from the Duke of Beaufort in 1927" and he died in 1932 so it must be around 1930. An interesting piece of historical ephemera, few copies of which appear to have survived the ravages of the Twentieth Century.
