“Taken from the first floor balcony of the 108 year old indoor market which sells lots of things you can’t easily find anywhere else anymore – like Carbolic soap, aniseed balls and thimbles. It’s served the people of Cardiff since Queen Victoria was on the throne, but now – surrounded by pedestrianised streets and with the gleaming new St David’s Shopping Centre on its doorstep, its future looks uncertain. The Council are currently ‘consulting’ on it so time will tell….”

 

Thanks Jeremy! Catch you next time…

The pets on the first floor gallery were my highlight, although looking back perhaps I should have been sorry for them… The market opened in 1891, the year my grandmother was born in Splott. I always think of her when I see the year marked on the front of the market building.
