a cup of tea and a bit of knitting . . .

this Welsh lady postcard was sent in 1927 and is published as part of the Celesque series.


  1. This looks a little Mother Goose like, or at least what I think Mother Goose looked like. Now I'm wondering about Mother Goose and her significance! I'm curious about the hat style in these photos, somewhat Mayan in some respects. Was it just a short term fashion or is there a tradition to them?

  2. Yes, she does look a more kindly lady. I've posted a couple of wiki links re. the hats and the traditional Welsh costume on today's post :)
