Just a reminder that there are now 2,600 old photos, postcards, maps, adverts and other bits and pieces dealing with Llandudno, Colwyn Bay & Conwy in the Forum Photo Archive.

I've labelled 90%+ of the images, so you can just do a search on 'Llandudno', 'Colwyn Bay' or 'Conwy' or something like 'Waldini' or 'Mostyn Street'. Try it and see.

Thanks for the "Search" link, really useful.  I had just put in "Conwy" as a search, and some of the photos had been uploded by you, I was interested in the 1993 Gyffin floods.  I had not heard of this and the floods were not as I would have expected of the Afon Gyffin, but from water rushing down from the hillside.  Do you have any further information on this, i ask because we live at the top of Gyffin, backing on to the fields below the mast, but I cannot see where floodwater could come from?

There's a small stream that runs down alongside the road from the transmitter. It goes under the estate and comes out in the Gyffin stream. Due to the volume of rain that fell that day, it decided not to run under the estate but through it.

Thanks for that Dave, we are away from that thank goodness, what a mess it caused.

Dave, I have copied this from the photo gallery, it was uploaded by you and was under a simple search of "Gyffin", however, there is no photo in the box and if you click on it it just has that little square thing in the middle that denotes a file you cannot view.  Is it just my computer, or is this file corrupted?  Yesterday I noticed others that I was unable to access, any thoughts?

It looks like some sort of error with the Gallery software, I will take a look.

There does seem to be a few problems with certain photos, it may be a Server problem so we'll have to see if it resolves itself as the software appears to be running ok.

Hello folks, I have discovered the recent aerial photos that have been put on the net and there are dozens of local ones.
Have a look at this and keep clicking because they go on forever.

Yep; for once, we escaped almost unscathed.
