HIGH STREET SCENES

High StreetAt the top is a photograph dated 1948 showing Habesch the jewellers on the northeast side of High Street. Love the 1940s headscarves.

Next comes a shot from March 1959 showing Boots chemist (centre left) in its present position. To the right of Boots is W. Garson Allen the gents’ outfitters, later Bradleys.

Finally, dated 1962, is a photo that catches part of W. Garson Allen’s shop (far left) and shows Marks & Spencer in its present position. Somewhere in between was Lawrence’s chemist shop.

All three pictures are from Rhyl History Club Community Archive.
