About this product
- DescriptionIn the last thirty years landmark buildings have been demolished, docks filled in, the barrage built, maritime businesses closed, and streets disappeared. In their place, a huge redevelopment scheme, gentrification, and tourism. Among the frantic activity, local communities face up to their changing landscape, with the implications it brings. With characteristic honesty and an eye for compelling detail, John Briggs brings these changes to a wider audience in this t to be missed book.

He came to Wales in the 1960s to study at Atlantic College in the Vale of Glamorgan, where an increasing passion for photography resulted in his first street images of Cardiff.

In 1947, returning to Wales to do teacher traning at University College, Cardiff, he began systematically photographing the city's disppearing docklands.
