Previously on this blog there were only two pictures of Joe Holroyd the founder of The Little Theatre, Rhyl, and they showed him playing roles on stage. Here is the real Joe on far left in the photograph above which is from Rhyl History Club Community Archive.

Click on the picture to see a bigger version.

The event is Rhyl Odeon Children’s Club Party; the date is given as 1948. Only two other people in the photo are identified: the gent next to Joe is R.W. Williams, and the one sitting next to girl in conical hat is Glyn Vaughan, a member of Rhyl Urban District Council.

Who else is here? If you can identify anybody please send email to:


SAT 7th AUG 2010 UPDATE: Message from Peter Trehearn: To your left of Glyn Vaughan above the mask is my grandfather, Councillor Phil Trehearn, who was a keen supporter of local drama. The man next but one to your left of P.T. may be Mr. Poole, one time chairman of RUDC.
