Sam Smith Mystery Series



Porthcawl, a seaside town 25 miles west of Cardiff, has featured in Ripper, Family Honour and Sins of the Father. This poster, issued by a railway company to entice people from the valleys to travel to the seaside, c1930, shows the promenade at Porthcawl. There have been changes to the town over the past 90 years, but this view remains basically the same.
