Holborn RestaurantLast Wednesday I posted the photograph of upper storeys of a town centre shop and asked what is the shop and where is it and what kind of business operated in the building half a century ago.

The answers: It is Classic Colour Centre (paints and wallpapers) at 17 Wellington Road. Half a century ago, as the old advert shows, the building was the home of Holborn Restaurant which could seat up to 500 and may have been the largest Rhyl restaurant of its time.

First to tell me the answers was regular contributor Gaynor Williams who promises to let me borrow more old Rhyl pictures from her collection in due course.
