Enid Mary Adams' maiden name was Jones.
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.
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
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.
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!
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!
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
Does anyone have any information about the Jesmond Hotel, Llandudno. My parents, Arthur and Amelia May Gee worked at the Jesmond in the 1920s and 1930s and I would like to find out something about the hotel. I believe that when war broke out Jesmond was used by the Inland Revenue and after the war it was turned into ...Read full memory
The Great Orme Tramway is split into an upper and lower section at Halfway station. This photo is taken on the lower section at the middle passing place, situated on Ty Gwyn Road just above Black Gate. At this point, car 4 takes the outer rails to pass car 5 which passes on the hillward side. The ...Read full memory
Does anyone have any memories or photgraphs of the church and or the church house next door? I know the Sheperd family lived in the house and that the Reverend Sheperd preached at the church, that's all I have (except that I know the church closed its doors as a place of worship a few years ago and nothing has happened to it since).
