Gasometer, Ikea, Ferry Road, Cardiff 22 May 2015
The 1881 gasometer by Joshua & William Horton, now dwarfed by its new neighbour Ikea. The 150 ft high gasometer is Grade II listed and is said by some experts to have been influenced by the 15th Century architect Filippo Brunelleschi, designer of the domes of Florence.

Joshua Horton was at the Aetna/Etna Foundry in Smethwick in 1851. In 1881, Joshua and William Horton were advertsing int. al. "gas equipment, sugar pans, coolers, girders... and every description of Iron Work".

Thanks. As I was a passenger that day, I had little opportunity to wander off to get better views.
