Penyard, Queens Road, and Thomastown. In the fields of Cae Mari Dwn Farm now stands Cyfarthfa High School. Penyard Infants School is no longer , neither are the cottages in the middle of the picture. The light coloured area below the cottages was once a  water storage pond for the Penydarren Iron Works. The long row of houses at the bottom of the picture is Trevithick  Street, built partially on the site of the iron works. .
