Last Sunday we had the uppermost part of two commercial buildings in Rhyl, photographed a few days before by Yours Truly. In each case, the question: What is the name of the business underneath?


The answer: ProCare Wales Ltd.
This is a privately-owned home care (home helps) agency managed by Helen Shepherd at Kinmel Place, 54-56 Kinmel Street:



The answer: 

Ladies' clothes shop at 17-21 High Street, one of more than 380 branches. The fancy name translates from French rather disappointingly as 'cheap'.


With correct answers to A and B to score 1 win: Richard & Ceri Swinney, Sue Handley, Jane Shuttle, The Great Gareth and 
 arriving back from Scotland just in time  Dilys Bagnall.


While on the subject of High Street, let me run some old adverts up the flagpole to see if any of you salute.
These are from Rhyl Football Club (Rhyl A.F.C. Ltd.) programmes from late '70s/early '80s when the team was in Cheshire League and Welsh League (North).

Benloy Stores would be Benny Lloyd. Does anybody remember what number in High Street his shop was?
