Very Old Geometry Problem

In my previous mail, I had mentioned a paper by Tom Rike namely "An Intriguing Geometry Problem" dated May 5,2002. This paper was about following problem
Let ABC be an isosceles triangle(AB=AC) with angle BAC=20 degree.Point D is on side AC such that angle DBC= 60 degree.Point E is on side AB such that angle ECB=50 degree.Find, with proof, the measure of angle EDB.
Above problem was posed by E.M. Langley and it appeared in Mathematical Gazette, Volume 11, p. 173. In this paper , he has mentioned 8 solutions.I have one more.I am posting this problem because so that who has not come across this problem can have feel of beauty of this problem and few more solutions can come out.
