A photographic view of crowds gathered on the hill of the Great Orme in Llandudno, Conwy, Wales, published by Francis Bedford & Co. The Great Orme was a major copper mining site in the mid-nineteenth century and the Happy Valley is a sheltered hollow on the east side of the Orme, popular with visitors to its informal gardens. Bedford (1816-1894) was a prolific and well-respected photographer, best known for his numerous topographic and architectural views of Britain. During the 1860s and 1870s Bedford travelled extensively throughout Britain, taking hundreds of views of British scenery. He was assisted by his son, William (1846-1893) whose work is almost indistinguishable from that of his father.
