Princes Street  -  Looking West

This view looks to the west along Princes Street from the Scott Monument.

Part of Princes Street Gardens are in the foreground on the left with the Royal Scottish Academy at the foot of the Mound behind (centre left).

This card has a divided back, but no message written on the back.  It was posted from Edinburgh to "Ross-shire NB" on 28 December 1902. 

NB = North Britain - this was quite frequently used for addresses in Scotland in the early 19th century.

Several of the James Patrick postcards in my collection are a little grubby.  I have restored some of the damage to these, using Photoshop.  However, I have left this card 'as found'.
