Last Sunday I posted the above composite of two pix of the SAME sign with the place name removed. 
The question: What is the missing name?

The answer: Frederick Street.


Albion Works

Also posted was the above photo of a works plate bearing inscription. The question: To what does 105 refer? (one word of seven letters).
The answer: Michael.

Michael is miniature steam train 105 at Marine Lake, built in the 1920s, here photographed in 1985, and currently in working order.
Albert Barnes & Co. were the makers (not Rhyl Amusements Ltd the name under which Mr. Barnes ran Marine Lake Fun Fair). 
Albion Works was and still is the name of the Ffynnongroew Road site where Arriva Bus Depot is now.

Scoring 1 win for Frederick Street and/or 1 win for Michael:
Richard & Ceri Swinney 2, Dilys Bagnall 1, Sue Handley 2, Jane Shuttle 2 and The Great Gareth 2.


A few days ago in Sidoli's, The Great Gareth (Gareth Morris) handed me these previously-unpublished snaps that he took in 1974 during demolition of Rhyl Pavilion: 

Thanks, Gareth.
