Here are two more photos from Mr. Anthony J. Robins relating to Robins Corner Café at the junction of Queen Street and West Parade. This time we see building work in progress; the contractor was Alfred G. Jones whose telephone number was Rhyl 339. The interior of the restaurant was very 1930s, very stylish and elegant. What wonderful pictures!

Mr. Robins adds more information. He says that the previous occupier of the site, Rhyl & Potteries Motors, was also a Robins family business and members of the family lived upstairs; the buses and routes were sold eventually to Brookes Brothers' White Rose Motors.
