THIS week’s From The Archive feature concentrates on Penarth Marina.

Each week the Penarth Times is exploring the history of the town through photographs.

This photograph was taken during the construction of the marina itself in 1987.

In the picture is the renowned Custom House or Penarth Dock Offices which is now home to the restaurant El Puerto.

Our thanks to Peter Bushell for submitting this fascinating photograph for this week’s edition of From The Archive.

We are always on the look out for interesting historical pictures of the town and surrounding area.

If you have a photograph you would like to share, email us at pe with the image and a short explanation of the history behind the photograph and your photo could be the next to feature in our series.
