This is one of the many Carnegie libraries. The statue in front is of James Gomer Berry, Viscount Kemsley, former proprietor of the Sunday Times and a number of regional newspapers. The plaque to the left of the library door commemorates Richard Lewis, aka Dic Penderyn, "a Martyr of the Welsh Working Class", who was hanged at Cardiff Gaol in 1831 for his part in the Merthyr insurrection that year.
