Cardiff, Maindy Stadium c.1960
Memories of Cardiff
My Great Grandfather James Miles died in the Infirmary, aged 40. He was a Labourer in the Cardiff Ironworks. I never knew any of my family, but when I read of where they lived, and worked and died, I feel so proud of them.
I like this photograph because it reminds me of when I used to travel in to Cardiff by train from Barry where I lived. I worked in the National Provincial Bank in St.Mary Street. I had some lovely friends and times
The David Morgan Dept store left of picture was one of the few privately owned Dept Stores in the U.K. This store sadly closed down in 2006 and is now being refurbished and made into apartments and smaller shops.
My Grandparents William Garside and Evelyn Bowden were married on 29th February 1896 in Cardiff and Grandad lived in Roath prior to his marriage. I imagine they may have also stood in this spot when courting, looking quite similar.
This photo is available to buy in a range of sizes and styles, including framed and on canvas.
