Probably one of the oldest depictions of Aberaeron is this engraving by Henry Gastineau in his
1830 volume 'Wales Illustrated'.
The piers were completed by 1809 and the inner harbour was excavated after 1811.The harbour was fully completed in 1816 just a few years before this engraving.

Aeron Express:

In 1880, a hand-powered cable car 'The Aeron Express' was built to ferry workers across the harbour when the bridge was demolished by floods. It was built to ferry labourers from the Liverpool quay on Quay Parade, to the Birkenhead quay on Lon Yr Hafen , in the absence of a bridge across the river Aeron.
