Ex-Rhylite Mr. A. Davies, who retired to a village near Torquay, likes old advertisements which pop up here occasionally. He says of the adverts for Marine Hydro (28 July) and Holborn Restaurant (12 Aug), “. . . they carry the full stamp of their times”.

I know what you mean, Mr. Davies.

Here is another from the early 1950s for the Rendezvous in West Parade, owned by a Mrs. M. Wright who may or may not have been one of the Wright family that has owned a number of cafes and pubs in Rhyl.

In the last few years the Rendezvous has been swept away; the building has become part of a block of flats.
