Temperance Town. The area, comprising of; Eisteddfod Street, Gough Street, Havelock Street, Park Street, Scott Street, and Wood Street, was built in the 1860s. Adjacent to the River Taff is the Wood Street Board School (1879) and St Dyfrig’s Church (1888). The name Temperance Town derives from the fact that public houses and alcohol sale were not allowed within the area. Temperance Town was demolished in 1937.

At time of photograph this was Cardiff General, the name change to Central came in 1973. Platform 5 was a terminal bay, long infilled. Anybody know when ?

Riverside station had two side platforms, this shows the situation after rebuilding as an island, at which time it was incorporated into Cardiff General as platforms 8 & 9.

This view works well with Google Earth if you manouvre it to the same height etc.The Huge Stadium where the Temperance Houses were.I bet it is not dry now! The riverside rail tracks no longer shown all clear to see in the comparison.

This picture is probably from 1932 as the station building appears to be under construction and I believe there's an inscription on the building saying it was completed in 1932.
