The city centre is shown in detail, with individual buildings neatly delineated.

    The many features include tramways, railways, GWR station, Rhymney station, Taff Vale station; parts of Bute East and West docks with railways, staiths and docks; city centre area, Newtown area, Riverside Junction station, Cardiff Arms Park, Castle, Temperance Town area, Glamorganshire Canal, and much else. We include extracts from a 1906 street directory on the reverse of each map.

    The map links up with sheets 43.11 Cardiff North to the north, Canton to the west, East Moors to the east and 47.03 Cardiff South to the south.
