Aerial shot of Conwy in the 1960s. Note the large Railway Goods yard in front of the walls which is now a landscaped area and path from town to car park, also the Vicarage Gardens car park is still the Vicarage Gardens at that point!

Looking out through the doors of the Civic Hall, maybe in the 1920s. I was interested to see that the building was referred to as the 'Market Hall' back then:

I liked the one Dave displayed above of Castle Street, especially the Cycle Depot.

Cycles built to order on the premises - I expect they shipped parts in from a manufacturer like Sunbeam then assembled them? (note the advertisemnts on the roof)

That plumbers shop is where the Chinese Takeaway is now, just by the bus stop on Castle Street.

Conwy in the early 1900s(?), taken from Conwy mountain. The Bodlondeb mansion is clearly visible on the left.
