South Wales Evening Post
I would like to see editions from the Cambrian and South Wales Evening Post..
Id like to read the archives to reminisce about where my family grew up

Always fascinating to see print from years ago especially when you want some particular information, also the history of Swansea is important. Even more useful when so many people move about the world and can look online for bits they like to know
Historical information should be readily available for Swansea and West Wales residents.

I would love to see more news about Swansea, the available coverage at the moment isn’t that great. I’m looking for coverage if the opening of my primary school Cwm Glas in June 29th 1960as it’s the 60th anniversary this year
There is so much history and culture in these archives. I subscribe to BNA and I'd love to see more local news.
Yes please - a fount of local information of interest to many hundreds of people.

I would like to look back on the South Wales evening Post. I think it's a great idea
Its a family history necessity to have these online records
This would be a joy to see the old stories please do add
The National Library of Wales has digitised images of the Cambrian and other Welsh newspapers including the western Mail, South Wales Daily Post et, from 1804 to 1919 available for free to view. The South Wales Evening Post would be good.
See to it that this is added !!
As part of a project for the website of the former Aberdare Boys' Grammar School, where she taught Geography and Geology from 1940-1942, I am researching the life of Miss Dilys Elizabeth Quick. She was born in Aberdare in 1916.
I believe that on leaving the above post in Aberdare, she was appointed to the staff of the Gowerton Intermediate School for Girls.
I know that the Gowerton Girls' Grammar School was founded in 1946 subsuming the Intermediate School.
Later in her career, Miss Quick became the Head of the Geography department at the Swansea Teacher Training College.
Can someone please tell me:
1. Did Dilys Quick transfer to the staff of Gowerton Girls' Grammar School, from the Intermediate School?
2. When did she take up her post at Swansea Training College?
Before her death, she became Dr Dilys Quick. Is there any available information about that later degree?
She died in 2003, aged 87 and her funeral took place at Llwydcoed Crematorium, Aberdare.
Why isn’t Swansea better covered
