Victorian Rhyl through the Eye of the Artist

Philip Lloyd will give a talk on ‘Victorian Rhyl through the Eye of the Artist’, illustrated on the screen by engravings, lithographs etc which help trace the growth of this popular seaside resort in its 19th century heyday (sometimes with unintended humorous consequences – all will be revealed in due course!). He will also display examples from his personal collection of prints.


Well-dressed visitors chat, walk, sit and ride on Rhyl Promenade. From the c1860 lithograph entitled ‘Rhyl looking East’, published by Catherall and Pritchard of Chester.
