  Station Crescent, Llandrindod Wells  
 

The view below Part of 1891 mapis looking down Station Crescent with Llandrindod Railway Station buildings on the left and the Stationmaster's house to the right.
Like some of the other old photographs in this series, it shows the very undeveloped look of the town in the early years. This slightly crumpled old picture was probably taken around 1893.
The portion of map from 1891 shown here shows Station Crescent curving down from the station towards Temple Street, and the solitary house opposite.

There was a gate across the road just above the station, shown in the detail (right) taken from the picture above. Railway Station The neatly trimmed hedge by the roadside can also be seen in an 1896 photograph of Station Crescent.

The open field on the right of the picture helped to keep the 'empty' look of the town in this particular spot for some time, because it was not built on until the new Post Office opened on the site in 1937.
