Photographs by William Booth

William Booth was a Cardiff-based photographer who was active in the 1890s and 1900s. He contributed many images to the Photographic Survey of Glamorgan. The images displayed here illustrate life in the streets and open spaces of Cardiff during the 1890s. The ‘Hotel de Marl’ was an outdoor drinking scheme devised by local men in Grangetown to evade the 1881 Sunday Closing Act.
