Prince Charles’s investiture as Prince of Wales in 1969 was hugely controversial. The ceremony took place in Caernarfon Castle and was broadcast to a nation divided in opinion as to whether it affirmed Wales’s place in the United Kingdom, or reminded us of English dominance. Nonetheless, street parties were held across the country in celebration of the event.
Steve Thomas sent in this picture of a celebration in Dafen park. In the background, Dafen brickworks' stack and the overhead cable which carried clay down from Capel Quarry.
