  The Black Swan Inn
A remarkable early photograph of Broad Street in Hay, dating from the turn of the century, is shown here.
The picture looks more like a painting than a photograph, and it shows the gas street lighting of the period. The Black Swan Inn at the junction of Broad Street and Bridge Street is on the right.
