The picture at the top was taken this month and shows the Police Station in Wellington Road. The building seems out of keeping with the older-style buildings each side. It speaks of practicality and philistinism.

The other photo shows the previous police station which stood on the same spot – this is another gem from the collection of Gaynor Williams. It is a photo from the late 1950s, and the bobbies of Flintshire Constabulary (as it was then) look quaint lined up in rows and wearing helmets. The occasion is not known.

TUE 30th JUN 2015 UPDATE: Talking of helmets, you don’t see one of these every day - a Flintshire Constabulary helmet plate!
