Roath Local History Society, in conjunction with Cardiff City Council,announces a three month exhibition which is being held at The Cardiff Story Museum in the Old Library on The Hayes.
On a theme of a history of the Mackintosh Estate, it traces the fascinating story of land ownership, the dividing up of estates and the urban development of much of present day Roath, by the Mackintosh family. The origins of the names of streets and roads can be traced to members of the Richards and Mackintosh families.
This pictorial record continues with the setting up of the Mackintosh Sports and Social Club, housed in Plasnewydd mansion, on land provided by Mr and Mrs Mackintosh and continues with the establishment of the Mackintosh Residents Community Centre, which is the headquarters of Roath Local History Society.
The Exhibition can be found in the City Lab, on the lower ground floor of The Cardiff Story and is open daily.
