Pocket Novelty Card

Scotland

This is one of several postcards produced in the Pocket Novelty Cards series for Edinburgh (and presumably also for many other places around Britain).

These cards had a flap on the front, with a pull-out strip of 12 small views of Edinburgh behind the flap.  The pictures inside all the cards that I have seen are the same.   The picture below shows one of these cards opened.  Please click here to enlarge it. 

The first of the 12 views (hidden under the flap on the front of the card) is also of Edinburgh Castle.
