Cardiff Market built by Andrew Handyside in 1891.

Andrew Handyside who made Friar Gate bridge also made lots of roofs for buildings incorporating ornate ironwork such as this one here in Cardiff Market also known as Cardiff Central Market.
The market was designed by the Borough Surveyor, William Harpur, and opened in May 1891.
Cardiff Market is "Marchnad Caerdydd" in Welsh.
