    @Colonel Cardiffi

    On page 3 of the old photos thread are a couple of pics of Ferry Road that might work well.

    Roath Park Pub

    Courtesy of @TDA - Plwcca Lane became Castle Road in 1874, which was named after Roath Castle. it ran north south from Cardiff through the settlement of Plasnewydd. Roath and Plasnewydd were absorbed into Cardiff in 1875. Castle Road was renamed City Road in 1905 to mark Cardiff's new city status.

    I assume those are the same trees in both photographs?

    See how much they've grown.

    Makes you think eh?

    I remember those houses. Very similar to what you can still see today on Park Place.
