Earlier this year, there was a favourable response to photos and memorabilia of St. Mary’s Convent School, Russell Road, Rhyl, sent by Diana Davies of Canada (was Diana Nicholas).

Above is another of her Convent School photos from the 1950s. It shows participants in a Sports Day obstacle race. Kneeling at the front are sisters Gillian and Jackie Roache. Standing, left to right: Don’t know / Pat Walker / Pat Kirkup / Sheena Sweeney / Janet Jones / Maureen Digan.

The Convent School girls looked happier than your average school pupils. No wonder they remember those days fondly!

Also from Diana is the following card postmarked Rhyl 9.30pm on July 10th 1908 which shows an Army camp that existed somewhere locally well before World War 1.The message is in faded pencil and sent to a Miss Lily Spencer at 54 Georgiana Street in Bury. 

Nice pix! Thanks, Diana.
