Postcard from Great Britain no. 2

Another great postcard sent from Wales (on 11 March 2009). This time showing the historic town of Aberystwyth in the county Dyfed (pop. 11,000), a centre of education and a principal stronghold of Welsh culture.

The lovely 50p stamp was issued on 10 March 2009 in the series Pioneers of the Industrial Revolution and features Josiah Wedgwood who pioneered the industrial production of ceramics in the 18th century.

Thank you, Phillippa:-)
