Dorothy Lewis nee Higgins was born in Grangetown and has lived her life in Cardiff

I first met my husband when I was 16, I met him in Leckwith and we used to go up to the hills behind Grangetown. My friend knew his friend and we stopped to talk. I got married to him when I was 20 and we stayed in Grangetown. I lived there most of my life, I lived in 3 rooms in a house on Taff embankment. We had 3 children and moved to Maindy Road, opposite the pool and they went to Gladstone Road School. There was 8 years between them
