Postcard  -  James Patrick  -  Castle Series  -  "The Roarin' Shepherd's Cottage" with a quote from R L Stevenson

Swanston lies at the foot of the Pentland Hills, about five miles to the south of the centre of Edinburgh.

This postcard was posted from Juniper Green, a few miles to the south-west of Edinburgh, to Haymarket, Edinburgh on 17 November 1903. 

It has an undivided back, the style used until 1902.  However, the writer has written a message on both sides of the card.  The writer who appears to be a postcard collector says that he/she had received four picture postcards from Liverpool the previous day and two more picture postcards on 17 November.
