Drawing on his detailed knowledge of the city's history, in this book Brian Lee takes the reader on a pictorial journey of the Cardiff of yesteryear. A fascinating selection of archive postcards has been chosen to reflect the changing fashions and pastimes in the city. They also show changes in types of transport, and the developing character of streets and districts as they took on the form that is familiar today.
Informative captions accompany the images to relate the history of the people and buildings. Including chapters on the castle, civic centre, city-centre streets, parks, religion, transport, the docks, leisure and sport and also the 1909 Pageant of Wales, this book is sure to enthral anyone who knows and loves this vibrant city.
