100 days in Cardiff – Tiger Bay Couple

We Are Cardiff contributor Jeremy Rees is recording his days in and around Cardiff with 100 photographs of local points of interest. We’ll be publishing some of them here on We Are Cardiff – and make sure you tune in to Jeremy as he presents the Saturday Soulful Breakfast on Radio Cardiff!

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.”

 

Thanks Jeremy! Catch you next time…
