Llangollen from the River Dee

The Welsh flag flying from the Town Hall gave me the clue that today it was St David's Day, patron saint of Wales.  So here is a Welsh town.

The card is from the 1960s and it tell the full story on the back "Although famous as a national beauty spot, Llangollen is better known for its international Musical Eisteddford, which has been held every summer since 1947.

Choirs come from all over the world to perform, and perhaps win a prize. Here is the Soul Sounds Academy Choir from Sri Lanka perfroming at the 2010 Eisteddfod.

Spent many happy moments browsing your fantastic blog. I also love stamps and cards but one seldom has time to delve into their origins.
