This is a cumulative index, compiled by Sue Mackay with the consent of the
author Stewart Williams, of all 36 volumes of the 'Cardiff Yesterday'
series, published between 1980 and 2000.
"Each volume contains just over 200 photographs of Cardiff places and
people, making some 7,500 photographs in all. I have compiled the index to
aid family historians locate photographs either of their ancestors or of
where their ancestors lived, worked, studied or worshipped. I have therefore
omitted many photographs from the index, mainly transport photographs purely
of old buses and trams, photographs of visiting royalty and group
photographs without named individuals where the faces are too small to be
recognised. Roman numerals refer to the Volume Number and the other number
to the Plate Number where the photograph can be found. Early volumes of
'Cardiff Yesterday' are now out of print, but later volumes can be purchased
in most Cardiff bookshops as well as at http://www.amazon.co.uk
. All Cardiff
branch libraries have a set, but please note that at Cardiff Central Library
the earlier volumes cannot be borrowed and need to be asked for at the desk
in the Local Studies Department."
I don't need tell you how much work an index of this size involved for Sue,
it is very much appreciated and will be a valuable and permanent resource
for Cardiff researchers. Needless to say lookups as such are not available.
Thanks Sue !
