This is an antique postcard showing a tinted photograph of "Aberystwyth - View on the River Rheidol at Devil's Bridge." Aberystwyth is an historic market town, administrative centre and holiday resort within Ceredigion, Wales. The Devil's Bridge is a well-known (then and now) tourist attraction about 12 miles outside of Aberystwyth.
Condition: Good used condition. The colors in the tint are still nice and strong. The tinting is well done. There is a crease at the top left corner and a chip out of the bottom right corner. The postmark is fairly clear and the stamp is a light green half-penny.
