the name of the jewellery shop was MANSELS,i think they came here  from england.the family lived for a short while in a flat in ffordd dwyfor.there was mr and mrs mansel and a son ,possibly michael,the business later moved to the corner of moon st. and mostyn broadway,mike tick tock took over the shop after moving from his shop next to baxters photography.but this has got me thinking was there two shops on this corner or just the one.

From 1955 - Ball & Boyd Estate Agents in the 'Loyal Arcade', 76 Mostyn Street. 76 Mostyn Street is now Superdrug. Loyal Arcade suggests more than one business/shop in the arcade, does anyone know more?

Thanks Dwyforite, that's interesting.  $thanx$ I wonder if there's any photos of the arcade anywhere. I've only ever known it as Superdrug.

At the bottom on the right was Mary Hone a wool shop and on the left Kendalls which became the first "Next" outside Manchester and they went on to bigger things!  At the top was the cleaners.  next door was Maypole and Princes Cinema and Sandbach.

I was just thinking that maybe one of the larger empty shops on Mostyn Street could be converted into this sort of Arcade format, whereby 5 or so smaller shops share the space. Would enable smaller businesses to get a toehold on Mostyn Street without it being an all-out gamble.

Westmorelands Toy Shop in 1966 (now Nineteen Coffee Shop, I think?)

I always find that 'Yachts That Sail' a bits strange, for some reason.

Here's Roberts & Son (The Royal Fish Stores), Fishmongers, in 1921. Their shop is now HSBC Bank:
