The question: Was this photo taken before or after 1950?

The answer: After 1950The biggest clue is the Woolworth building (now B&M). It was constructed in 1955.

Scoring 1 win for correct answer: Dilys Bagnall, Richard & Ceri Swinney, occasional player Robert Scott, and The Great Gareth.

Gareth draws our attention to some interesting old pix of Rhyl taken from the air. They are on the website of the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales. Here is an example showing railway station, town centre and pier:
