Tiger Bay Couple
“An early meeting in the Bay this morning took me past this wonderfully evocative and much photographed statue which I take to be a reminder of when Cardiff Bay was ‘Tiger Bay’ the thriving multicultural community that grew up around the coal exporting docks. I find the stories of those days fascinating – the history of the area is something that should not be forgotten, thankfully there are a growing number of people who feel the same way and are finding new ways of interpreting it through the arts. This statue is a fine example of that.”
