Western Ave now but was once called St Athans Rd...The houses were demolished to make way for Gabalfa flyover back in the 70's It was a lovely tree lined road my grandfather had to be rehoused as he lived in one of the houses that would be demolished.

Well spotted Gareth, looks like Birchrove Rd, leading into Heathwood Rd running from bottom left diagonally to the right, eventually leading into Rhyd-y-Penau Rd past the reservoirs.



Using max magnification I think I can just make out "The Birch" pub at Caerphilly Rd / Heathwood Rd junction!!



I think it's mid 30's as the house where my parents lived is visible and that was built about that time

This is northern Cardiff, before 1939 as my old house is not visible. Most of Whitchurch is off to the left; the prominent white road is Western Avenue, joining North Road; Caerphilly Road runs off to the upper left. Llanishen reservoirs are in the distance.
