Nostalgic memories of Rhos's local history

Share your own memories of Rhos and read what others have said

For well over 10 years now, we've been inviting visitors to our web site to add their own memories to share their experiences of life as it was when the photographs in our archive were taken. From brief one-liners explaining a little bit more about the image depicted, to great, in-depth accounts of a childhood when things were rather different than today (and everything inbetween!). We've had many contributors recognising themselves or loved ones in our photographs. Why not add your memory today and become part of our Memories Community to help others in the future delve back into their past.

In the mornings after sweeping the terraces and pool and emptying the litter drums, it was off to Sheard's deli in the (...Read full memory)

I grew up in Rhos on Sea and remember very clearly the group of shops in this photo.
