The work on my next book – Swansea in the Fifties – continues. I have spent some time trying to find good illustrations and I am delighted to report that I have had excellent support from Marks and Spencer. I contacted their Company Archive which is based at The University of Leeds and they have sent me a couple of pictures that I can use when I write about the development of post-war shopping in Swansea. Other people I have contacted have not responded at all – most notably Swansea City Football Club and some other local businesses – but M&S have been really helpful. So thank you very much. I may buy new underpants as a mark of gratitude.
