The Pier at Llandudno
The Llandudno Pier Company commissioned the current pier from a Glasgow company in 1877. Built using cast iron it was opened in 1884 and a landing stage added in 1891. Steamships from the Liverpool and North Wales Steamship Company provided the pople of Liverpool with excursions to North wales almost every day. I have a vague memory of travelling on the steamship St. Tudno in the late 1950s for a day out in Llandudno.
The decline of the company started in the 1950s as the excursions became lass popular and finished altogether in 1963.
