Swansea Marina
Swansea Marina
The first part of the new Maritime Quarter to be built for residential purposes was this stretch of flats in the early 1980s. This picture, taken in 1989 could not be taken today as a 29 story tower has recently been built in the area occupied by the car park.

The other difference being that when the picture was taken, only about a third of the inner marina was in use whereas today boats occupy the entire marina.
