This card dates from a similar time to that of The Shambles elsewhere on this website and was received by Ann's great aunt Hilda Walker when she was visiting Llandudno. It shows open topped omnibuses, each pulled by a pair of horses, that ran on lines in the road. Note the gas lamp in the foreground.

Not all the shop signs are readable but J.H. Bacon is a No7 and the clock is advertising Batty and Sons. The long ladders belong to the window cleaners.

Judging from the time on the clock and the sun awnings and shadows we believe the photo was taken from the Royal Exchange, looking eastwards.

More information would be gratefully received.
