QUIZ ANSWER # 182

Beach sands donkeys pier

On Tuesday 17th January 2017 I posted this picture which dates from 1960s/early '70s. In the background, on the inside of the sea wall, is a large notice beginning PERSONS LEAVING BOTTLES . . .

The question: What does the complete notice say?

The answer: PERSONS LEAVING BOTTLES OR GLASS ON THE BEACH WILL BE PROSECUTED.
The notice was repeated further westwards near top of John Street as shown below:

Beach sands, sea wall, steps

If you were word perfect you could award yourself a win.

The black-and-white image dates from about a decade before the colour pic. It is from Bill Ellis' book 'The Spirit Of Rhyl'. I am pleased to report that Bill is in reasonably fine fettle and still making lunchtime pilgrimages to Sidoli's ice cream parlour.

BRYNTIRION FARM

Robert Scott has popped up again. This time he says, "I am quite anxious to find a photo of the Bryntirion Farm buildings, once occupied by Mr & Mrs Arthur E. Roberts of the William Roberts Ltd family from about 1915 until 1926.
"It was also known later as Finnegan’s Gardens, between Highfield Park and the railway. This was within an area now bounded by Highfield Park, St. Georges Crescent (part) and Parc Esmor (part) also including Clos Gladstone and Cae Uchaf.
 "If any of your Readers has, or can guide me to, a photo/drawing of the property I would be most appreciative."

If you can help with this please drop a line to Robert Scott via Yours Truly.
