100 days in Cardiff – Cathedral Walk

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!

Cathedral Walk

“This mural is really large – but is easily missed. It’s painted – rather incongruously – on a wall between The Metropolitan Cathedral Church of St David, and Minskys Showbar “providing live drag entertainment starring Tina Sparkle” (that’s Cardiff!) the mural is of a cliff with the sea crashing into it. Above the picture are the words ‘Union of Shop Distributive and Allied Workers’ who presumably occupied Minskys before Tina moved in. Quite what the picture depicted has to do with the Union is a mystery to me.”


Thanks Jeremy! Catch you next time…

  1. We Are Cardiff can do better! It’s an intriguing scene – Italianate and serene (and because of that, almost comical given its location). What a shame the author didn’t bother to investigate further. Some actual information would be worthy of a blog post.


    1. Hey Dai, sorry you feel that way – perhaps you’d like to investigate and maybe write up your findings for us? 🙂 Jeremy’s 100 days in Cardiff is only intended to be short snapshots of his life around the city, posted to Facebook. I hope this has whetted your appetite for more information though!
