Now & Then, former Lord Wimborne PH, Cardiff

The former Lord Wimborne PH, 91-93 Portmanmoor Road on corner with Pontypridd Street, Splott, Cardiff, demolished in the 1970s along with the nearby houses and even the streets have gone!. I had to refer back to an 1888 OS map to confirm where Pontypridd Street was, shown below the Google Street view image.
The pub was named after Ivor Churchill Guest, Lord Wimborne, grandson of Sir JJ Guest, owner of the original Dowlais Works in Merthyr Tydfil

Comparison of 1888 map and modern-day satellite image, the cross-hairs show the corner position of where the Lord Wimborne PH stood
