More about this scene

The pier originally measured an impressive 1234 feet, but this was extended to 2295 feet when an extension opened in 1884 that took the pier past where the Grand Hotel is today, right to the main promenade. A new landing stage was added in 1891, and was reinforced in 1904.

Sparked a Memory for you?

If this has sparked a memory, why not share it here?

I was intrigued to find this. I grew up knowing that my great-grandfather, Rabbi Harris Levin of Cheetham had been injured following a cable car/tram accident but did not know the details. He was paralysed following the accident and died a year later in 1933. One of his many children was my grandfather, Joshua Levin. In 1979 I moved to Israel and purely by chance stumbled upon his great-nephew, an Ultra orthodox gentleman with 10 children.

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
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.
