COLWYN BAY AND ITS ATTRACTIONS. The Liverpool Evening Express (August 15th, 1894): —Seaside resorts and their relative attractiveness are now the subject of comment in nearly every family circle in the land. Criticisms are freely indulged in, preferences asserted without the slightest regard to the consequences which might ensue from the jealousy of an offended rival, and the various aspirants for public favour and pat- ronage are overhauled, searchingly examined and dissected by the observant and energetic holiday- maker. Colwyn Bay is known to have put forth tremendous efforts to lure the highly respectable individual with a plethoric purse to its shores, and its natural beauties, its magnificent vistas of sea and mountain, and its pleasingly varied walks and drives, combine to make the rising sea-side resort a thing of beauty and a joy for ever. But-and how much virtue there is in a "but"—there are drawbacks even at Colwyn Bay. A correspondent who is favourably disposed to Colwyn Bay charges the powers; that be with neglect of little things, attention to which would materially improve the comfort of residents and visitors. And in reality it is the little things which make or mar a day's pleasure. There is what he ironically terms the "elegant embankment," which has been con- verted into a series of dust heaps, and otherwise subjected to the skill of the amateur or youthful designer; there is a plentiful lack of shelter on the walks or on the shore, so much in request in a typical English summer, and so much appreciated wherever they are provided. And there seems to be likewise a demand for seats that is very ade- quately provided, but worst of all the nigger minstrel has been almost driven away by regul- ations, while his place has been taken by the religious enthusiast, whose prayers and exhort- ations are listened to with many evident signs of displeasure, cynical smiles and remarks, and which, uttered amidst a variety of incongruous and confusing cries and shouts, commercial and otherwise, produce in the minds even of the most religious listener and spectator a real repugnance to the entire proceedings. This is by no means peculiar to Colwyn Bay, but may be witnessed at most of the busy watering-places on the Lan- cashire and Welsh coast. It is highly questionable whether any good is effected by mission work conducted under these circumstances, while to many it is repellant in a pronounced degree.
