Considering how easy it is to build up a collection of links this way, it would probably be a good idea for someone devoted to teaching the language to build up as many as possible in order to show the language in use. Just virtually walk around the street for a few hours, and save a new link every time another example of Welsh shows up.

Google's coverage of France is the best of all the countries in Europe it has featured so far, and that includes the northwest. It's much more difficult to find something written in Breton though. After twenty minutes of searching I finally found a single one.

In Britanny, Breton seems to appear mainly on bilingual roadsigns (but not on pavements !)
There may be some issue with Google Street View in France, for some people have claimed it infringes their privacy.
I remember that, in front of the house near the Lawyers' School at Strasbourg, we can see two people carrying a ladder.
