Victorian Swansea - People’s stories


Cover image


Who were the Victorians of Swansea? How can we find out about the ordinary people who lived and worked in Swansea in the 1850s? What was Walter Butt doing with a pineapple? Why was Mrs Phillips criticised for selling fruit on a Sunday?

This Learning Activity explores some of the sources which briefly record moments in the lives of the people who otherwise disappear from history and encourages students to interpret the sources and create characters themselves.
