And Tiger Bay Died Too

John F. Wake

Lightning Source POD



The demolition of Tiger Bay in Cardiff corresponded with the final years of the Cardiff City Police, the force soon entering into an amalgamation of constabularies. Street life in 1960's Cardiff was colourful to say the least and the only protection an officer had was a truncheon and a whistle. Cardiff police did not even carry handcuffs. The I.T. revolution was decades away. Follow Cardiff City Police officers on their beats and in their police stations in this informal look at 1950 and 60s life. Anecdotes vary from The Beatles' visits to street prostitution. Why was it called Tiger Bay? And do you remember the iconic pubs not only in the 'bay' but within Cardiff's boundaries?
