Classic photo

This is a photo of Welsh national dress at the turn of the century from here. Isn' it marvellous? Look at the face of the middle lady. She looks so sweet. I am sure it had a Macbeth type caption. Most probably they are all 45, but had hard lives, sweating and toiling day and night, supporting their husbands and sons in the  coal mines of Wales.

Or maybe, they are wise women, and the locals go to them in the dead of night, creeping around to their back door, to obtain herbs.

This has got my fancy. I think I will have a look at Welsh history this week. xxNick
