Well-known Penarth photographer Katrina Dimech has embarked on a mission to capture photographs of all the “Brains” railway bridges – which bear the logo of beers produced by the iconic Cardiff brewers.
Katrina has identified 6 “Brain’s” railway bridges and is aiming to immortalise every one of them on camera before the paintwork fades or flakes any further.
Apart from the familiar – and frequently clonked – black bridge across at Windsor Road, Penarth, the others are all in Cardiff – at Penarth Road Cardiff, Clare Road, Bute St and Bute Terrace.
Katrina – who has a photography studio “Shutter Hire” in Dinas Powys has told Wales on Line she is only interested in the Brains bridges “because they are specific to Cardiff’s identity, and that’s what makes them a great piece for art in the home”.
She’s hoping to sell the original prints as wall canvases for home decoration
Who knows? …The initiative might even prompt Brains to get the paint brushes out and spruce up their neglected and rusty railbridge at Cogan.
