Wow. Well done. That is sufficient incentive to get hold of 25 inch map.
By the way, how did you find it?

At the local studies library in Cardiff. Sadly the other photo is too big and I canít make it any smaller.

It came out fine. Sorry to persist with the questions, but how exactly was it catalogued and was there writing on the back etc?
Very exciting for me, as this could be where my great grand parents married in 1859. T.

Do you know they married at St Davidís - i have a listing if that would help? But yes, as I understand it, this was the original church built when a few rooms in David St became too small for the congregation.

Yes. I have a copy of the ceremony certificate. Thanks for your offer.
I picked up somewhere, but cannot now find out where, that it was built to cope with the big Irish influx to Cardiff following the potato famine. Lots of them were employed building the nearby docks. T

I just asked in the local studies section if they had any photos of the church and they found two. Obviously not photos sadly of the time you are really looking for but the best iíve found.

This gets better & better. Is this from the 25 inch map that I am seeking?
What is the road's name at the bottom of the map?
Thanks, T
