  • Did it really survive into the 60s ? Temperance Town is partly cleared in this view, where did the congregation come from once the houses had gone ?

  • Tank engine - possibly a 0-6-2 type - hauling a passenger train. The first vehicle appears to be a full brake - possibly a 6-wheeler: its too short for a bogie coach

  • The original Head Post Office building on Westgate Street, Cardiff was constructed to the design of Sir Henry Tanner at the turn of the twentieth century. The building remained as Cardiff's Head Post Office until 1983, following which it remained empty into the 1990's.

  • Cardiff Arms Park was donated by the Marquis of Bute to the City of Cardiff "for recreational use" in perpetuity. The Arms Park was used by Cardiff Cricket Club from 1848 and subsequently by Glamorgan County Cricket Club until the 1960s. The southern part of the park became the home of Cardiff RFC from 1876. In the 1960s, as cricketers relocated to pitches up-river in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff's rugby club took over the former cricket ground while the existing rugby stadium shown in this image was redeveloped for international use as the National Ground Cardiff Arms Park. Between the Welsh 3-0 victory over England on 22 January 1955 and England's 13-34 victory on 15 March 1997, all Wales's 5 Nations home fixtures were played at the Arms Park / National Ground.
