The bustling city of Cardiff undergoes a transformative change as the road under the Queen Street bridges is being lowered, marking a significant milestone in transportation history. This print captures the progress made on August 25th, 1949, showcasing the completion of one side and the commencement of traffic flow on the newly lowered surface. With its roots firmly planted in the 20th century, this snapshot from Memory Lane Prints transports us back to an era where hardworking men and women dedicated themselves to improving infrastructure. The image depicts diligent workers digging tirelessly amidst a backdrop of towering bridges and busy streets.

It serves as a reminder that even in times past, cities were constantly adapting and evolving to meet growing demands.
