The Dock Master's view, Cardiff Bay
The Dock Master's view, Cardiff Bay
This is the view over Cardiff Bay from the former dock master's office in the Pierhead building.
It was the ground floor corner room shown here Link .
In the early 20th century this was the world's largest port and the dock
master's responsibility was to get the vessels moved around quickly and safely.
In those days, before the barrage, the bay was tidal thus exposing extensive mudflats.
