The town of Rhyl was born around the turn of the nineteenth century when the novel idea of 'sea bathing' and 'taking the air' at coastal resorts began sweeping the country. At Rhyl splendid villas and a terraced promenade were built, spelling out the importance of this salubrious spot on the North Wales coast. This absorbing collection of more than 200 old postcards and photographs, many never previously published, provides a nostalgic glimpse into the history of Rhyl during the last century, and explores the town's remarkable transformation into a flourishing seaside resort. The people, landmarks and events of 'Sunny' Rhyl's past are captured in this fascinating volume, including the crowning of Rhyl's May Queen, the beach fashions of the 1900s and a century of top seaside entertainment. Past stars associated with Rhyl include The Beatles, Laurel and Hardy and Paul Robeson. Cherished street scenes have made it into print, revealing how High Street, Wellington Road and other well-known Rhyl streets once appeared. Rhyl will reawaken fond memories for many, while offering others a unique glimpse at the past for others. It is sure to captivate all who know the district.show more
