    Cardiff Telephone Exchange - At the end of St Mary St, on the corner of Customhouse St + New St (Back when Mill Ln used to have a canal running through it, the N side was known as Mill Ln, the south side as New St. Its now just known as Mill Ln). Now occupied by a multistorey.

    What an effing travesty. That was an imposing and impressive building, replaced with a 60s style heap of shit.

    Glad they didn't knock this down and it was preserved and refurbed instead.

    Perhaps Cardiff planners learnt from their elders' mistakes and something changed here in the 2000s?

    Prior to that, this building, the Altolusso frontage, St David's Hospital frontage and the Grosvenor Hotel in Splott would've all been demolished without a second thought.
