    I'm thinking about starting a new thread for THEN AND NOW picture combinations like the above with the old pic above a modern day screenshot of the place on Google Streetview.

    Anyone want to see a thread like that? Would anyone else chip in to that thread? Bit of an arseache getting the streetview screenshot see, init?

    The Swiss Bridge at Cardiff Castle was built by the architect William Burges in 1873.

    Modelled on the Kapellbrücke in Lucerne, the timber bridge ran from a doorway in the base of the Bute Tower across a leat directly into Bute’s private gardens (now Bute Park).

    In 1927, the Swiss Bridge was moved to a new location across the Dock Feeder canal, connecting the Castle Mews to the park.

    The bridge was demolished in 1963.

    Llandaff has been linked to Llandaff North via a bridge over the Taff for hundreds of years.

    Llandaff Bridge at one point was the most important bridge across the lower reaches of the Taff, and sometimes had to be used instead of Cardiff Bridge (Canton Bridge) when that became flooded or was unsafe to cross.

    In the mid 18th century, Thomas Roberts built a three-arched stone bridge.

    The Beatles. The Rolling Stones and others, all travelled in this van. The 1960s and the Cardiff City Police was in its last years. The groups would come to the central motor patrol office and get taken to the venues in safety. Usually the Capitol which was surrounded by tens of thousands of screaming people. The entry to the Capitol was around the back via North Edward Street.
