Vintage postcards of waterfalls

Today's vintage postcard entry covers falls and waterfalls. It wasn't until I'd selected a handful to share that I realised they were all of Wales ... I guess no real surprise although I'm sure I also have some of Scotland and the Lake District somewhere (my postcard collection is in serious need of some house-keeping). The Faulkner card is probably my favourite because of the beautiful use of colour, but the first sepia one also has an appeal.

  5. I remember camping in the rain near Bettws-y-coed as a teenager, the deluge added to the waterfall:-) A lovely selection of waterfall cards.

  12. I remember being taken to Betws y Coed by my parents at just about the time when I no longer wanted family holidays. Sadly, that's the more or less the full extent of my knowledge of the village.
