United Kingdom – Wales

Postcard showing an early twentieth century view of the high street of Prestatyn in northern Wales. After the arrival of railways in the nineteenth century, "Sunny Prestatyn" became famous for its beach, clean water and seaside promenade. Thanks to Ceri who was visiting her hometown.

Literally the day after learning of the existence of definitives for each of the United Kingdom's constituent countries from a Northern Irish postcard, I received a postcard from Wales with a Welsh definitive! Curiously, it features a daffodil rather than a leek. I guess they needed to make soup on photo day.
