I’m exploring the Catacombs below the Mansion this week.
I’m actually looking for the Jar and the Key to the door to the Canyon below, so far without success. I found an old sign the other day, which was strange, but not as strange as my latest find.
Three old postcards lying scattered but together.
One from Blackpool, one from Rhyl and the third from Skegness. Now, I’ve been to Blackpool and Rhyl on many occasion, but never to Skegness.
The images on the postcards are somewhat different to how the towns look today (speaking for Blackpool and Rhyl; I wouldn’t be knowing about Skegness, but presumably that would have changed with the times as well). Rhyl is shown to have a monorail, which I simply can not recollect.
I’ve had to do some research into this, and have found, through the wonders of the internet, that a monorail did, in fact, exist in Rhyl in the early 1980s. For a few weeks anyway, until the company went bust.
I mustn’t have visited Rhyl during that time for I have never seen even the track, let alone the train itself, which I presume would have to have been in place for quite some time.
I must walk around with my eyes closed for most of the time. Or looking in the wrong direction, anyway.
I wonder what else I’ve missed as I wandered aimlessly through countless days?
