About this photo

The St Mary's we see here was only a few years old, and is possibly the sixth church on the site. The 1898 version was completely destroyed in a wartime air raid, along with much of the town centre. This was in 1941 when most of Swansea – the 'ugly lovely' town of Dylan Thomas, was damaged beyond repair, including its historic 'Old Town'. The new building was re-opened by the Queen Mother on 28 May 1959.
