The National Library of Wales today posted its first collection of photographs on the famous photo sharing website Flickr. By doing so the National Library is the first British library to join the Flickr Commons initiative.

The Library has uploaded over 100 photographs from the P B Abery collection, a rich collection of photographs taken between 1890 and 1940 in the border area of Wales and England, and especially the old county of Radnorshire in present day Powys. The photos include the weird and wonderful – including a dog smoking a pipe and turkeys blocking the road, the beautiful landscape of Radnorshire and the agricultural world in decline by the 1920s.
