FLASHBACK #14


Promenade east

This unposted card of East Parade Gardens on the prom is thought to be from late 1950s. The tall building on your left is Colet House which was then South Yorkshire Miner's Convalescent Home (now St. David's Residential Home).

Furthest left, the small white building was a place of refreshment known as the Tea House. According to Bill Ellis' book 'The Spirit Of Rhyl', a visitor there was the musician and composer Sir Edward German.

Sir Edward died in 1936 and the Tea House passed away in 1960s.
