    When you walk down Morgan Arcade today it covers up great Cardiff history, and a few crimes. Centuries ago, round about the middle, where the lanes criss-cross, (old legal rights-of way) it was the stables for the horses that took the mail / passenger coaches out of town.(owned by The South Wales Carriage Company). It was the large yard of a pub called THE GOLDEN LION. The area was called Greenmeadow Court and Golden Lion Court. It was in 1895/7 that Morgan Arcade was built over the pub's large stables and yard. It appears the Golden Lion was at the corner end of Bakers' Row and Wharton Street. The local Cowbridge Mail coaches went from the Red Cow in Womanby Street. (Next to Horse and Groom in pic)

    Incredible piece of engineering that viaduct, used to swim, shoot and fish down the drope as kids, all gone now and replaced with houses.
