Dowding's Estate Agents Cardiff Road - a Memory of Caerphilly.

My father purchased the Dowdings Estate Agency, I think possibly from the owner Mr William Dowding, in 1955.

The original building, built circa 1900, was then sold to Lloyd's Bank when my father's business closed down in the mid 1980's. They originally rented just the ground floor and subsequently knocked the original building down and replaced it with the current building which they now occupy completely.
