The Cruel Streets

The Cruel Streets

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm | 28/03/2017

Join author and local historian John Wake as he discussed his new book, The Cruel Streets.  A police officer who worked in Cardiff for over 25 years, he examines a side of Cardiff’s history that reflects the times – the struggles and poverty. This book tells the story of some of the real characters, sometimes merely nameless records in police files or newspapers, others better documented, forming a collection of reports that bring to life the meaner aspects of Cardiff’s back streets.

Following the talk there will be an opportunity to view relevant items from the Glamorgan Archives collection.
