In 1891, Lars Peter Hansen, a native of Copenhagen, settled in Cardiff and, with his third son, Leslie, established a photographic business at the Cardiff Docks, selling pictures of ships to seamen and shipowners. Following the retirement of Leslie Hansen in 1975, the Welsh Industrial and Maritime Museum purchased the Hansen Collection, consisting of over 4,500 negatives of photographs taken at the docks between 1920 and 1975. This volume, which gorgeously reproduces a number of these images, is intended as a tribute to the Hansens, who through their work have bequeathed to Wales a pictorial record of shipping activity at the nation’s premier port.
