1930's - The Penarth Dock Custom House and Dock Offices built in the Renaissance style. A photograph of the building under repair with scaffolding in place. The sign on the door states 'Offices' and two dogs stand guard awaiting their master's return for their walkies on the beach perhaps!

It is a substantial building just as Mr. Harry Martin suggests and the interior is just as splendid and the food was good at my last visit there. I personally recommend the hake!

The clock was supplied by Mr. Dent in October 1865 and the impressive stone carved crest below the clock is the coat of arms of H. M. Customs & Excise. It became a Grade II listed building in June 1986.

The original glass negative of this photograph is held at the archives of the National Museum of Wales. [Museum item number : 1996.96/1418] [629] [20180416]
