Hello everyone - hope you have a great holiday. I've just spent several days updating
www.gillyart.co.uk (http://www.gillyart.co.uk)
I've added more places; flowers and artcape pics - including pics of my recent visit to Venice (Artscape 3). I'd love to share my latest album pics with you all.
Love
Gilly

My grandfather and his family came to the USA from Llanelly in 1896. Have yet to visit there but it is on the top of my list.

Any chance you have pictures from Llanelly?

Happy New Year back to you!

Sorry, I haven't been to Llanelli - it's in South Wales and we live in the north of the country. Have a look at: http://www.south-llanelli.co.uk There's a gallery of pics there.
Cheers!
Gilly

Cyfarchion y Tymor!

Thanks for posting (I reget to say my Welsh is basically non-existent, despite my Grandfather's attempts to teach me a few words when I was a wee one) ...

Does anyone really say: "Twll dīn pob Sais!"??

This shot of the tin works most likely is where my great grandfather worked before he left Wales for the USA (and subsequently, along with my grandfather, had a similar job in Indiana):
