Then when Hotpoint vacated the building Donald Ball of Ball & Boyds used it for his business.

Merediths had a garage down there at one time. I think it was in the Hotpoint building.

Remember Lo-Cost too? Now HMV in Mostyn Street
The store frontage in that photo dates from the Liptons days, I think. I remember there was a separate entrance on the right hand side (visible in the photo), with a flight of stairs leading up to the first floor. The stairs may still be there as there is still an unused doorway onto Mostyn Street. Didn't someone say there was a cafe on the first floor once? If you look up through the first floor windows now, you can sometimes see a large domed ceiling if the lights are on up there.

That photo sums up how I remember Llandudno as a child. The shop at extreme right looks to be Halfords, I seem to remember it was also the electrical retailer Rumbelows at one time?

My mum used to take us upstairs to the Liptons cafe very often, I still remember it well. Rumbelows I remember too. Here's Billy Wrights cafe, before and after.

Thus leaving a good view of the NFU and Avon Insurance Offices were I worked from 2 January 1967 until 31 March 1973.

The Leun Hong Chinese Restaurant (or was it the Hong Shing Bri?  ;D) was further east of Boots, near Williams Typewriter. The rear of the restaurant bordered the car park and had a small yard where they kept crates full of beer bottles.  ZXZ  :laugh:

It was definitely Leun Hong, Trojan.

Mr Wan was a client of mine for many years before his passing.

He is buried up at Llanrhos Lawn Cemetery with a wonderful headstone alongside the drive round.

Ah yes, I remembered the discussion on the old forum. Mr Wan had a son Tony I recall. The Hong Shing was in Lloyd St. It became an American style restaurant for a time, DC's Chuckwagon. Isn't that the place Ainsworths have just refurbished into a cafe?

No, it was next door, where the Hambone itself is now.

I see some of the Llandudno Local posts have been amalgamated here! Five years ago, doesn't time fly?

Cheers,

Derek.

SHOPS: STANGE & CO
Another shop that hasn't been mention that was an institution was Stange & Co where I worked for years
on saturdays and school holidays. The owner Jimmy Rowlands was a second dad to me, an absolutely
brilliant bloke full of good humour. I remember the Christmas period, it was hectic but great fun,the
blokes staggering in from the Carlton on Christmas eve to buy the missus some flowers, fond memories
of Martin Payne who bought a big bunch of crysanth blooms and by the time he got 20 yds down mostyn
st there was hardly a petal left on them!! also remember Joyce Elias who worked with me for years.
Great fun.
