Visions of Steel - Port Talbot steelworks

Can you help us fill in the blanks? Identify the location, machine or individual? Have you any memories or experiences to share of steelworks in Wales?

More than a thousand glass negatives were saved from being lost by members of the Historical Society of Port Talbot and by working in collaboration with the People’s Collection Wales Programme and National Library of Wales volunteers they have now all been digitized. Now we need help to put meat on the bone!

If you can help us by identifying any location, person or steelmaking process which can be seen in the images why not share it with us by leaving a comment?
