Geographical curiosity from Great Britain
Received on 9 April 2009, an interesting greeting from the island of Anglesey off the Welsh mainland. The picture shows the area around the suspension bridge (1826) over the Menai Strait with the town boasting the lovely name Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (the longest in the world?).
The card was sent through the Shrewsbury postal hub on 6 April 2009 and the postage is covered by the 56p "queen-head" definitive, incidentally, the first day the new postal rates apply for Europe (from 50p to 56p). Thank you, Phillippa!
