Postcard  -  Albany Series

Waverley Bridge

Farewell to Edinburgh by Their Majesties

This postcard with its broad white border is not typical of most produced in the Albany Series.  It is a view of Holyrood Palace, from the forecourt.  The fountain is to the right-hand side of the Palace, with Arthur's Seat in Holyrood Park in the background.

This is one of two cards used to promote a business.  See the back of the card above for details.  It was posted on 24 September 1909.

The other Albany Series card promoting a business was a view of Craigmillar Castle produced for Andrew Lawrie & Son.
