This is Barratt’s Restaurant at Ty’n Rhyl in Vale Road.

In mid 1800s, Ty’n Rhyl was the home of Angharad Llwyd who was a Caerwys girl, a clergyman’s daughter. Angharad was a distinguished writer about Welsh history and a collector of antiquities. In 1866 she died at Ty’n Rhyl aged 86. Many of her written works are in National Library of  Wales, Aberystwyth.

Some of this information is from the book ‘Rhyl - The Town And Its People’ by J.W. Jones, published 1974. The photo was taken earlier this month by Yours Truly.
