45 Fascinating Photos Capture Everyday Life of Wales in the 1970s

This post was originally published on this site

Wales is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It is bordered by England to the east, the Irish Sea to the north and west, and the Bristol Channel to the south.

Wales has over 1,680 miles (2,700 km) of coastline and is largely mountainous with its higher peaks in the north and central areas, including Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa), its highest summit. The country lies within the north temperate zone and has a changeable, maritime climate.

Although Wales closely shares its political and social history with the rest of Great Britain and, while a majority of the population in most areas speaks English as a first language, the country has retained a distinct cultural identity, and the Welsh is spoken by a majority of the population in parts of the north and west.

Take a look at these fascinating pics from Glen Fairweather to see what Wales looked like in the 1970s.
