On this blog there have been a couple of references to bathing machines (changing rooms on wheels) and here we see them illustrated clearly. A bathing machine could be pulled to and from the water’s edge by a horse.

The picture shows the view looking westwards from the pier; it is an unused postcard and therefore undated. In the distance is Rhyl Pavilion which opened in 1908, so the picture dates probably from the 1910s.
