It seems to me that Llandudno has had more than its fair share of arson attacks.
Ivor Wynne Jones's book is replete with such incidents.
Many great edifices have been lost.

In the 1970's, an Irishman apparently tried to burn down The Grand Hotel ... TWICE !!!

Oh! dear! Fester, I always wondered where all the UK arsonists were hiding!  Don

The Princes Cinema (now HMV), Mostyn Street, goes up for sale in the 1950s. Who knew that Charlie Chaplin performed there when it was the St. George's Hall?  :o

I think this is a fantastic image, Alex defiantly promoting his show against the backdrop of a crumbling Grand Theatre. Dates from the late 1970s, I believe.

Alex used to drive a cream coloured Commer caravanette, similar to this one pictured below. He had it serviced regularly next-door to the Grand Theatre at L.S.P. Motors.
