Just a steel town girl on a Saturday night

I was born in another age. remember the hooter in the steelworks over the road heralding the start to the day and the end of lunchtime.

It sounds like it was a hundred or more years ago. It looked like it was, too. My school was built, a model comprehensive of the future, with Modernist right-angles and swimming pool and youth wing, on top of a copper slag heap, in 1976. Here’s a picture I found of the site in 1963.

It’s from an excellent blog called Swansea Recalled. I hope they don’t mind me pinching it.
