Welshpool is a town in mid-Wales on the River Severn four miles from the English border; its Welsh name is Y Trallwng. In English it was formerly known as just "Pool" but its name was changed to Welshpool in 1835 to distinguish it from the English town Poole. It has a population of six or seven thousand, and lies just north of Powis Castle.
Llanfair Caereinion is a small town in Wales on the River Banwy (also known as the Einion), around eight miles west of Welshpool. Its population is about two thousand.
The railway first ran in 1903. I don't know the location where the photo-graph on this card was taken; can some one tell us please?.
