Excellent!  Obviously a press cutting, too.

As you got of the tram in Penrhynside the first thing in Pendre Road that you would see was that public toilet block.     It came in handy after a night on the    Z**

It's a long time since they closed them down
The odd thing is that the toilets are still there, they simply closed up the entrances in the wall and left the buildings intact behind. In 100 years, I expect there will be a Time Team special about them...  :laugh:

Hello everyone

There has been brief mention of the Miniature Steam Railway, which i think was on the front between Rhos and Colwyn Bay. I seem to recall this from 1975, although i can't recall exactly where it went.

is my memory at fault? I would be very interested in further details.

Many thanks

TL

This one?

Although only a print I found this quite interesting.......

Going through some of dads stuff from Rhos, I found the print below,   "Facsimile from the Mercators atlas 1611 Latin edition"   Printed by the North Wales Weekly news Conwy in 1979. 

Gerardus Mercator was perhaps the best-known mapmaker of all time.

Very impressive, and also surprisingly accurate for its time.

Love this photo of the original Pavilion on Colwyn Bay Pier under construction.

This was the pier's second pavilion, the photo is dated 5th May 1923, it replaced the original pavilion which burnt down in 1922.

The second pavilion burned down in 1933 and I don't know when the 3rd was built.


I am not sure which of the two fires is shown in this photo.
Things are never so bad that they can't get worse.

I never said it was your fault; I said I was blaming you.
