It is not just my youth that has long gone...........

I thought somebody might have commiserated over the loss of Rhos pier, if not my youth...  ;)

There was quite a debate about Rhos pier a few years back on here.

Last night I watched a rerun of the BBC programme Coming Home with the recently deceased Terry Jones, of Monty Python fame, (I believe available on BBC iplayer,) returning to Colwyn Bay in 2009, part of the programme was a piece with Graham Roberts of the Colwyn Bay Heritage Group https://colwynbayheritage.org.uk/  discussing his family connection to Colwyn Operatic Players 0f which my Grandfather was a member.

During the interview, they discussed  his Grandfather and mothers part in the production of The Sorcerer in 1929, and I noticed that my GF was in that show, with both Terry's Grandad W.G. Newnes and his mother Dilys Newnes, nice surprise for me.

In 2015 I posted a piece on Terry Jones....http://www.threetownsforum.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,57.180.html    Reply #194 on: July 15, 2015,

 Very little has changed in this picture in over 100 years, with the exception of the removal of all of the shop canopies

This is the Rhos-on-Sea Townswomen's Guild Choir, I think from around the 1950s? Gladys Dyster (my great aunt) and Muriel Clayton sit either side of the conductor.

If somebody on the forum has a relative in that line-up, I'd be very happy to pass this photo on :)

I've edited the pic to make it clearer and the right way up.  Ian.

Yes Hugo, that was me 1952, a few years later 1954 the pier was demolished, the family house, near The Abbey hotel, overlooked the pier.
