Fog In The Bay 1 Mono

By silversnapper1
Cardiff Bay played a major part in the development and success of Cardiff as an exporter of coal to power the industrial age. Tiger Bay is historically one of the first multicultural ports in Great Britain and the community comes from up to 45 different nationalities. The docks were regenerated in 1999 by the creation of the Cardiff Bay Barrage. The 5 structures that reach out into the Bay from outside the Welsh Assembly building are known as dolphins. They are timber structures with 4 almost upright corner piles, sloping slightly inwards, and cross-braced, with metal plate reinforcements at angles. Dolphins each connected to wall by 2 walkways at low level and were used for mooring ships during repairs.
