Lost Tramways of Wales Poster – Queen Street, Cardiff
Archival photograph taken from Lost Tramways of Wales: Cardiff.
Caption reads: ‘With the Empire Theatre on the left, three of the system’s early open-top double-deck cars make their way along Queen Street. The theatre was originally built in 1887 but the building seen here was
the result of reconstruction, designed by the noted theatre architect Frank Matcham in 1900 following a fire. The theatre was converted into a cinema in 1937. It was demolished in 1962 following closure.’
