Last Sunday I posted this: an unusual sight above a shop in Rhyl town centre. The question: What is the name of the shop?
The answer: Kavick's Bazaar.
The shop sells discounted household goods at 15 Wellington Road, photographed this year on a dull day by Yours Truly:

Kavick's Bazaar, YMCA, William Hill

Also I posted the following photo taken this year of a house in Rhyl. The question: What is currently the name of the house?

The answer: Canterbury House.
Residential care home and nursing home at 77 Dyserth Road, photographed by Fred Burns who was standing in Cae Gruffydd to confuse you.

Scoring 1 win for Kavick's Bazaar and/or 1 win for Canterbury House:
The Great Gareth 1, Dilys Bagnall 1, Jane Shuttle 1 and Sue Handley 1.

The following references are added here for indexing purposes: YMCA Rhyl, William Hill Wellington Road.



No good for a quiz picture, got to be Princes Street. The item is a postcard dated 1913 from E. Davies who had recently taken up residence at No. 26 (marked with an X) advising Mr. H. Harris of Wolverhampton of the new address. I would love to see one of these cards in good condition – it’s a Rae Pickard photograph!

MON 11th JUN 2018 UPDATE: On the subject of Canterbury House, this week it is the subject of bad publicity. See Daily Post:
