I wish they'd chop down those f**king trees, looks much better the view of the old library without those huge trees in the way.

True, it's one of the most gorgeous buildings in Cardiff and no one gets to see it. I even struggled to get a good shot of it in Google Maps.

Preferred queen street before it was pedestrianised, could jump off the bus straight into the Taff Vale pub or the odeon or ABC cinemas.

Those photos are taken from the start of Shirley Road, I used to go out with a girl who lived there when I was a youngster, lovely big houses.

I'm depressed, our city looked much better years ago, planners and architects have all but destroyed its character.
