The population of Wales contains brithonic elements mixed with goidelic and invernian or pre-celtic, probably pre-aryan. The principality of Wales is adminstratively a part of England, though differing more or less widely in blood, language and national character. It is a mountainous land and contains Snowdon, the highest point in South Britain; and is in the north particulary picturesque. The climate is similar to that found in England. The welsh language is generall spoken throughtout Wales. The costumes shown in our picture are those of peasantry living on the west coast of Wales. The tall hats worn by the two women are exclusively Welsh, and are considered very valuable heirlooms, being handed down through several generations. THE SINGER MANUFACTURING CO.
