My family connection with LLandudno starts with my grandmother. She moved with her widowed mother, brother and sister from Sutton Coalfield sometime in 1900s. The family name was Ford, it comprised my great-grandmother Emma and 3 children, Gladys, Roland and Constance. My grandmother Gladys married a local Welsh speaker ...Read full memory
I used to live near that gas tank and sometimes you could smell the gas. Also across the road, there was "something dangerous" which the local residents wanted removing,I think it was a fire or explosive hazard of some kind. Glyn,Llandudno
Enid Mary Adams' maiden name was Jones.
This photo of Happy Valley brings back many memories! Great Shows with Alex Munro (actress Janet Munro's father). Janet was married to actor Ian Hendry. Great times, comedy, songs, dancing, talent shows. Pay for seating within the fenced area or sit on the hillside as these people were - and my family did! Also ...Read full memory
My mother worked in the cafe for many years. I used to play with John, who lived there with his parents and sister.
I believe my great grandfather, Ernest Gordon Wright, was born at the livery stables on Mostyn Street in 1888. His father, my great great grandfather Joseph Wright was the manager until he died in 1889. My great grandfather's older brother, Charles, was also born there in 1887. I would love to know more about them as a family. My great great grandmother's name was Emily Anne.

Oh how I remember going to shows at the Theatre. The one I recall most is seeing Tommy Steele - sometime in the 60s. Walking along the Pier before or after and having a cuppa or an icecream - great stuff. Gone are the days!
Llandudno is one of my favourite places in the world! As a child and early teenager every summer family holiday was spent here. This photo of the top reminds me of knickerbocker glory ice creams with the huge swirl of cream on the top, rock grafitti on the hillside (go there - they still do this!), picknics, walks, tram rides. It was wonderful stuff!
My sister, Ellen, won a children's talent competition at Happy Valley in 1936, at the age of eight, playing 'Minuet in G' on the piano. I was only aged two at the time but I still remember the 'modern' Kodak camera she won as the prize. Ellen was a very talented musician and went on to enjoy a life full of achievements.
