Cambrian Foundry Metal Work

Posted by Llanrhystud Childminder On Tuesday, August 24, 2010 0 comments

As posted in the 'Aberystwyth Job Centre' posts I asked if you knew where you would find metal work produced by the Cambrian Foundry, today? This photo of Aberystwyth Station Platform shows metal colums and supporting brackets produced by the Foundry some 100 years ago, now covered by netting to prevent birds getting into the roof space.

What interesting facts do you know about Aberystwyth Train Station?

This picture of 'Cambrian Foundry Metal Work, Aberystwyth' taken on an winter afternoon – more precisely, it was January 25, 2006 and the time was 6.20pm GMT. My Fujifil FinePix 2600 Zoom exposure dial was set to the Aperture f/3.5 setting and the camera was handheld. Other settings include the white balance that was set to “Auto“, being a sunny day – this setting helped me obtain that nice color saturation, which I later enhanced on my computer.
