RHYL MAY DAY

This snap of a Rhyl May Day parade is from Gaynor Williams who says it would be late 1960s. Owing to a flaw on the original picture, the driver’s face has been reconstructed by Yours Truly and may well bear no resemblance to reality. Next to him sits a Michelin Man figure. The registration number on the car is 122 DM.

High Street shops in the background are, left to right: Talbots ladieswear 68-70 High Street, now Barclays Bank / Frank Arthur newsagent No. 72, now High Street News (H. & R. Starkey) / Henrys of Rhyl boys outfitters, on corner of Wellington Road, now Boomers Toys & Gifts.
