PavilionFurther to the post IN THE AIR (Sunday, 11 October 2009) which featured an early 1960s aerial shot of the eastern seafront, sent by George Owen, here is an image that must be from the same series. This shows the central part of the seafront.

Click on the picture to see a bigger version.

On the lower right is the paddling pool, and nearby is Rhyl Pavilion with its big white dome. The white square next to the Pavilion is the roller skating rink opposite Water Street; the bigger grey square with a centre island is the cycling track opposite the Queens.

This item comes to us from Pete Bethell who works at Pavilion Theatre; readers may know him as a disc jockey and performer and man about town. Pete is a member of Rob and Julie Armstrong’s Centre Stage Theatre Company.
