This is a lovely idea for a local history study. Despite being a large thriving Victorian seaport there was quite a struggle to establish effective firefighting in the town in the 1800s. The hard work and devotion of the borough policemen and a couple of tragedies combined to ensure that the local borough fire brigade would always have a place in the hearts of the local townspeople. The author tells the story of the Swansea fire brigades from their earliest beginnings in the 1800s to the eventual absorption into the West Glamorgan Fire Service. Beautifully illustrated with a nice readable narrative covering the dramatic events of many of Swansea's most famous emergencies, this is an excellent addition to the history of Swansea.
