WED 21st JUN 2017 UPDATE: At the beginning of February 2017 part of Colwyn Bay pier collapsed, and at the end of that month a large section fell into the sea during a storm. The following pix are from drone footage by Lis Aerial Photography, published by Daily Post.

Now, the nearest pleasure pier to Rhyl is the one at Llandudno which remains fully functioning and almost as handsome as ever. Here is a Raphael Tuck postcard of the structure circa 1950 showing a steamship docking at the end.
