The people who inhabited the dockland area of Cardiff, know as Tiger Bay,
have engraved their personalities on the very air of Bute Street and, under
Alexander Cordell's vivid pen, the streets are crammed again with every
creed and nationality; from priests and nuns to dockers and drunks; boxers,
rugby fanatics, concubines and Bute Street ladies. The place comes alive in
all its bawdy strength and colour.
