RHYL SEAFRONT

Gaiety Theatre, Rhyl

In October last year I mentioned an A5-size booklet of fourteen arty black-and-white photos by Stephen Clarke titled 'Ocean Beach Rhyl' (published 2014) in a limited edition of 150.

Recently a companion volume turned up  the covers are shown above. ‘Rhyl Seafront’ (published 2015) is in same format and this too is limited edition of 150. Its fifteen images show parts of West Parade and the promenade.

Cover shot of Gaiety Theatre would be 1980s (it was demolished 1991). Presumably the other pictures are from the ‘80s as well. The text gives no clue as to the date or any other information because there is no text.

Clwyd Cream Ices' kiosk is featured and so is the Information Centre in a unit on the prom before it moved to Children’s Village. Also we have the arcades Stardust, Mint and Ronald Seldon's Sands; and Bumper Boats. The booklet is a time capsule.
