Some pictures suggest a particular day of the week. Above (TOP) seems to say Saturday; it shows the hustle and bustle of a busy day at the Open-Air Bathing Pool on the prom. The card is postmarked 1932 and is from a Mr. Laidler in Rhyl to a friend back home in Scotland.

The other card seems to say Sunday. The relaxed demeanour of the figures in the foreground indicates that time was passing at a slower pace. The location is the west end of the beach, possibly opposite Sandringham Avenue. The card is unused and therefore undated but feels a little earlier than the other.
