Welsh dry plate negatives 1906?

Another job lot of dry plate negatives, I was hoping they were half plate so I could re use the wooden box for my own plates, turns out they are 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. So some sort of postcard sized camera. A little odd in size as most would be 3 1/4 not 3 1/2 inch?

A mixed box of family portraits, a wedding, funeral and a lakeside home?

Would this have been classed as risqué or just fashionable at the time?

Someone might recognise this terrain and landscape. I wonder if that lakeside house is still there?

And then maybe someone might know this Church and the grave of Laura Jones… Died December 20th 1906, of Porth Dinorwig. Which I think is in North Wales just North of Caernarfon.
