Victoria Wharf remains in 2001.

2001 - Dr. Mary Gillham is focused on the mayweed in flower and rooted upon the rotting wooden dolphin in the image below rather than the concrete of the new Cogan spur road bridge! I have a great deal of enthalpy with her on that one although I have to admit that I do like the curvature of the bridge spans but purely from an engineer's perspective. The photograph above provides another view of part of our proud maritime heritage now lost.

More of the photographs from the archive of the amazing late Dr. Mary Gillham M.B.E. [048] [634] [635] [20180217] Many thanks to Alan Reeve at the South East Wales Biodiversity Records Centre (SEWBReC) - www.sewbrec.org.uk - for permission to use this image on the Penarth Dock website.

River Ely remains of a coal tip in 2001.

2001 - Yet another photograph by Dr. Mary Gillham M.B.E. of the remains of a coal tip on the northern shore of the River Ely taken from a boat during July 2001. I am unable to firmly identify which number it is but it is soon to removed and the heritage lost forever in the Cardiff Bay redevelopment scheme.
