A nice photo from 1934 of the shop that is now Nigel Roberts Newsagents on Gloddaeth Street. Is the woman on the right running for a bus?

It's interesting to see how much younger the town was, then. Many trees in their infancy and the town itself markedly smaller.

All taken around 1886-1900 (Pavilion was finished but Grand Hotel construction not started).

Sorry my appearances on the site a rarity nowadays-90% due to working abroad for most of the time in recent years.

Alerting members to the showing of a 1952 film on TV tomorrow (Sunday 4th August) much of which was shot in Llandudno in that year.

The film is called 'Hindle Wakes' and here's the link to a film website with a local history emphasis

Hindle Wakes was a fascinating watch, although it did seem at times like a simple travelogue of Blackpool and Llandudno. What I hadn't realised was that it's a landmark production, being a third remake of two previously  made silent movies and - interestingly - still being staged with the centenary production of the 1912 feminist classic and the first London production in more than 30 years having had the entire run completely sold out at the Finborough Theatre during 2012.

The film version shown was overly simplistic but it nicely foreshadowed the 1960's revolution in attitudes and social awareness.

I think they have got the wrong kiosk on page 4 – hinwa132.

They have photographed Fester’s emporium instead of the gents' toilets towards the end of the pier.

That's a really interesting site, RichieC.  Lots of old favourites there - and of local interest it also has Unman Wittering and Zigo.

Just watched that film. Thanks RichieC.
What a great Sunday afternoon blast of nostalgia.
Poor old Cathy and Old Mrs Hollins though!
