This Rhyl May Day shot is from Val Lovibond.

On the back it says Photograph by W. Renshaw, 117 Wellington Road, Rhyl. The address is a small shop on corner of Ffynnongroew Road, recently occupied by Sovereign Funeral Services.

The photo was taken in the 1960s in Wellington Road, probably from an upstairs window of No.117; that terrace of cottages in the background is still there.

On display are young ladies from the Keep Fit Club which was above Jack Hughes’ cycle shop in Bodfor Street (now flats above Thomas Estates). Val is the brunette sitting on the car chatting through a hula hoop.
