About the book:

Before The Deluge is a fascinating depiction of a now-vanished world, which was swept away by an untimely wave of unsympathetic redevelopment. Cardiff docks were once among the busiest in the world, home to a vibrant multi-ethnic community, studded with architectural gems - Georgain, neo-Gothic, Art Deco, the first purpose-built Mosque in Britain. Briggs was there to record its final moments which followed a period of long decline. His photos capture the faded grandeur, the desolation of wasteground and demolition site, but also the spirit of the still-resident communities. Before The Deluge is an important archive of a period crucial to Cardiff's development, and also a selection of images which are stunning in their own right.
