Edinburgh Castle and National Galleries

Above the picture on this postcard is a banner with a quote from Scott:

"I view yon Empress of the North, sit on her hilly throne."

This postcard with its Queen Victoria half-penny stamp was posted on 15 October 1901, nine months after her death.

It shows how postcards were used at the time.  Until the legislation was changed in 1902, postcards had undivided backs.  The message was written on the front of the card beneath the picture.  Only the address was permitted on the back.
