Last Sunday I posted a larger version of the following photo with a street name blanked out.
The question: What is the missing name?

The answer: Lynton Walk.

Also I said that in the 1930s a Rhyl May Queen was crowned by a Princess.
The question: Was it the Princess of  A - Samoa, B - Denmark, C - Monaco, D - Sarawak or E - Romania?

The answer: D - Sarawak.
The year is 1932, the Rhyl May Queen is Miss Rene Edwards, and the crowner is the Princess of Sarawak. The following newspaper cuttings
and portrait of the Princess are from files of the late Glyn Rees:

So there we are. The Princess was an Englishwoman of the Brooke family, The White Rajas. The family’s extraordinary story is told in Wikipedia:
