The postcard has a hand-written note on the reverse stating that it was 'Bought 1961.' The Penarth Dock Custom House and Dock Offices stand proud above the entrance lock except that Mr. Dent's fine clock is missing its hands. Another heritage postcard held within the Penarth Dock Collection. [001]

Can anyone identify the vessel moored at the basin steps and/or the make of car parked at the quayside? I suggest that the photograph dates from the latter years of the 1950's. Can anyone suggest a more accurate date please?
