   Post Card  by Hartmann  - Portobello Beach 

 

The view

Portobello was a popular holiday resort for visitors from Edinburgh and from the West of Scotland in the early 1900s. 

This photograph was taken from Portobello Pier, looking to the east over a crowded beach.

The Postcard

This postcard by Hartmann is one of a series produced around 1903.

It was posted from Edinburgh to Port-Glasgow in 1904.  The message written on the front of the card reads:

"This is Portobello in 'The good old Summer time".
