Cardiff's 'Lower Eastside' is not a title that many would have heard, but it's a useful label for those complex of streets that lie (or 'lay' in some cases as many of them have disappeared now) between Queen Street, St David's 2 and the railways lines. In its day, it was home to almost 6,000 people.
