Gordon Hemm was a Merseyside architect and illustrator best known for works such as the image above of Pier Head, Liverpool. There is not much info about him on Internet; he seems to have passed away in 1950s.

A couple of weeks ago, I discovered the following undated image of Rhyl Pavilion by Mr. Hemm:

The contours of the old Pavilion look better here than in real life. Further details about Gordon Hemm, and his activities in Rhyl and North Wales, would be most welcome.
