NLW photograph album 249

This album contains 17 salt prints of views in the Gower area including Caswell Bay, Oxwich Church, Penlle'r-gaer and Sketty Hall. The album includes impressive, evocative views by Mary Dillwyn of the coastal villages of Oystermouth and Mumbles. A view of Oystermouth is taken from the castle using a window to frame the fishing boats on the beach, a cluster of fishermen's cottages above the high water mark, and Mumbles lighthouse in the distance. Another view of the Mumbles imparts an almost Mediterranean feel to this part of the Gower.
