Rhyl, TigerGeoff Banks says, “This photo was taken around 1954 in the arcades at West Parade, Rhyl. I am sitting behind my brother Glyn who is 5 years younger. We were on what seemed like a real tiger skin. Next to us is our father Geoffrey who was from Wallasey; he met our mother there - she was a nurse at the hospital. While we lived in Rhyl he was a sales rep for Libby’s canned food and Blue Peter tyres.”

Thank you, Geoff. Now about this tiger, I have consulted Gaynor Williams, Peter Trehearn, Bill Ellis and the other usual suspects, and no one can remember the tiger. Anybody who knows where it was should put us all out of our misery by sending email to:
