Happy Commonsversary, LlGC ~ NLW / Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru / The National Library of Wales !

Posted by Penny in Anniversaries

A year ago today, the National Library of Wales joined Flickr Commons, and they’ve had a fine first year of uploads. And with over 800,000 photographs in their collections, ranging back to the very beginnings of photography itself, we can surely look forward to more wonders from Aberystwyth. But for today, Da iawn a llongyfarchiadau ! (Well done and congratulations!)

Elinor Amy Dillwyn Llewelyn, 1853 girl holding doll
Bardd Trefowen, Llanfair (Caereinion?)–obviously a highly-decorated bard a bearded man, with many ribbons and awards pinned to his jacket
The Orangery, Margam, 1850s outdoor scene, tree dominates
Conwy Castle and Bridge castle and bridge
And the laughing Newtown Ladies’ Bowling Team, 1939 group of women laughing
