A postcard collected by Owen Jones, Penlanwen, Llanddewi-Brefi whilst he was travelling around America after working at a sawmill in Canada for a year. He bought a plot of land in Canada with a Dutchman, and came home to Llanddewi-Brefi to marry his sweetheart Elizabeth Jones and take her out to Canada to start a new life. However, Elizabeth refused to move to Canada and Owen had to fly back to Canada alone to sell the plot of land before coming home to Llanddewi-Brefi to marry Elizabeth, where his family now still live.
