In response to an appeal some time ago on this site, Mr. James Russell of Wolverhampton has sent these postcard images of Kinmel Bay and Towyn. The sepia at the top is a card of Coventry Co-op Camp, postmarked 1954. The black-and-white has an interesting caption (wrong bridge), and the Towyn card dates from days of Clwyd County Council 1974-1996. Thanks, Jim!

THU 18th JUN 2015 UPDATE: Just arrived at Jones Towers is this old image of Foryd Road, Towyn. It is a postcard, unused and undated.

Click on any image to see a bigger version.

The following pix of Towyn have been rescued from a deleted post. They are undated. The first shows Abergele Road, possibly as long ago as mid 1930s; by the end of the ‘30s there would have been caravans in sight. The other shows Rhyl Road circa 1970.

[These names are added here for indexing purposes: Sandy Cove, Black Cat arcade.]


SAT 22nd APR 2017 UPDATE: More views of Coventry Co-op Camp. The address is Voryd (Foryd) which is an old name for the whole Kinmel Bay area. The first card is undated; the other two are Raphael Tuck cards first used in 1939.
