Hi Class 31,

This is indeed an image of Tremorfa, Cardiff.

We will update the catalogue in due course.

Thanks,

Hefin

All the evidence is that this is Tremorfa, Cardiff looking north with the former Cardiff Municipal Airport in the foreground and the Rhymney River on the right. The GWR South Wales Main Line runs across the shot in the middle distance with Roath Power Station in centre shot. This is a confirmed location from the evidence. The official location needs to be changed.

If Newport road, Cardiff it would tally with the original location of Cardiff airport, hence the 'Cardiff' sign in a field

Isn't this photograph of Newport Road, Cardiff?

The old trolleybus power station just behind the bridge over the GWR main line with Tremorfa housing this side of the tracks?

This doesn't look like Newport. Cardiff maybe? Clue is the word 'Cardiff' marked in field on right with a circle. Any ideas what this is? A marker for aircraft?
