More old and new


Posted by Picasa
The top building was originally a wholesale potato warehouse which became derelict.
The lower one was a canal bridge, now a cyclepath and walkway. All now far better from what I remember, but were they better than the originals. If Cardiff had kept all its canals it would be a very interesting city today, the Venice of Wales maybe.

  1. I agree with you, Davem: in France too, many cities changed their canals or rivers into cars parks or roads, like Rennes in Brittany for example...The car is our dictator!

  5. These are great restorations; in the town I live in, there are few old buildings, and none from the time period you show so often.

    I remember when I was young in my hometown; the Post Office was a large brick building that took up a corner lot, possible one of the oldest there.

    It was torn down, instead of restoring it, to make way for a store.

    And the Post Office became this ultra modern building that had no character, as far as I could see.

    Thanks for posting pictures of Cardiff...it's very interesting to me.

  8. I didn't know that Cardiff had canals. I think the building and the bridge look very nice now. That looks like a lovely bike path and it's great to have a specific place for cyclists.
