Last Sunday I posted this photo which was taken in mid 1970s in Rhyl.
The question: In what street/road is the rear of the bus?
The answer: Crescent Road.
Your crafty blogger blanked out a wall sign saying Crescent Square.

Also I posted the following photos taken this year and they all have a place name blanked out.
The question: What are the three missing names?
The answer: firstly Diane Drive, and then Tarquin Drive, and finally Pendyffryn Road.

Scoring a win for the correct answer to bus question, and/or a win for the three place names:
Geoff Hughes 2, Richard & Ceri Swinney 2, Sue Handley 1, Jane Shuttle 2, Dilys Bagnall 1, The Great Gareth 2, and Dorothy Jones 1. (Nice to meet Dorothy at the dentists this week!)

Regarding the bus, here is a reminder of the place from where the vehicle had probably just departed - the Crosville Bus Station in Crescent Road. The photo was taken in 1974:

Crosville Bus Station, Crescent Road

The location is now a derelict car park as photographed a few days ago by Yours Truly:


This week a couple of readers have pointed out possible mistakes in the blog, one about the name of a street/road - thanks Jane - and the other about the identity of a person (this one is still pending.) Do pick me up on factual errors involving places and people. Let's try to get everything right for the sake of researchers!
