V. Trehearn, J.H. GriffithsThis 1926-27 photograph of a class at Christ Church School, Vaughan Street, came from Peter Trehearn of Savoy Enterprises, 7-13 West Parade (the block that includes Vern’s Amusements).

The picture was given by Mr. Trevor Hinder who is in the back row, second from left, to Peter’s father the late Vernon Trehearn (Vern!) who is in the front row, second from right.

In the back row, second from right, is the late J.H. (Jack) Griffiths who, like Vernon, became a Rhyl councillor. Jack is the author of the book ‘Parish Of Rhyl: a brief history of the parish and the parish church’ which was published in 1999.

Peter and I are not sure why there are only boys in the picture. Was there
a time when Christ Church School was for boys only, or were boys and girls segregated, or what?
