Brilliant !! What was next to Forte’s ?
H O Davies shop. Garth Davies, well named as he was a big man, ran an old fashiioned hardware shop where you could by 2 screws and not the obligatory packetful if you only wanted 2. However long he had held his stock you still payed the original price, not a hiked up one. Always reafy to give good advice and was alway so helpful.
Are you a relative of liz turpin
Magg’s . Was it Stantons the bakers next to Forte’s. There used to be a huge restaurant up-stairs in Forte’s called “the Medina” restaurant that employed a proper set of Chef’s. I know this to be a fact as 2 of them were my brothers along with the head chef that i served under years later when doing my apprenticeship in Llandudno. I also remember having my hair cut/styled downstairs in the old Manweb shop, on a Thursday night by John —-, i cant remember his surname, and having to queue out the door into the street. As Mr Turpin has said, Garth Davies was a big man and a gent with a good sense of humour. You could buy 2 screws and have them wrapped.
Was that the same hairdresser, that percy took Clive to and locked the
door so Clive didnt bolt?
Peacock Chinese restaurant – first in Rhyl? The Pudding Pie chip shop in Rhuddlan is run by the original proprietor’s son George .
The Medina restaurant was on the first floor , my wife’s 21st was held there
– a bit of juggling around since they could not remain open after midnight on the Saturday night – local bye laws.
Where has the Old Rhyl disappeared to?
