Newtown had always had a woollen industry and it was this local Welsh Flannel which formed the mainstay of Pryce-Jones' business. It was the reform of the post office ...
... and the arrival of the railways ...
... which helped turn a small rural concern into a global company. Pryce-Jones hit upon a unique method of selling his wares.
Gwendoline Davies (1882-1951) and Margaret Davies (1884-1963), two sisters from near Newtown, amassed one of the great British art collections of the 20th century. Together, they bequeathed 260 works to the National Museum of Wales in 1951 and 1963, completely transforming its art collection in character, quality and range. The Gallery is named after them.
What our "hosts with the most" had overlooked was a further thrill in the Newtown visit. Next door to the gallery was the exciting bus station (?).
Bet you can't wait! Meanwhile here is Newtown Station today.
