Recently, one of our volunteer groups have been listing and packaging records collected by Philip Lloyd relating to Rhyl. The collection includes records relating to the Rhyl Urban District Council elections, Rhyl Eisteddfod, Plaid Cymru and various photographs and negatives which were accumulated during Mr Lloyd’s career as a teacher and County Museum Education Officer.
Our volunteers were excited to find the collection included a few early photographs including this image of soldiers outside the town hall returning from the Boer War in 1901! You may recognise the area which is now a busy crossroads.
To find out more about Rhyl’s connections to the Boer War and the war memorial see the Rhyl History Club’s post.
In our last project update we outlined our progress so far this year with cataloguing. We are pleased to say that the following small cataloguing projects are complete-
