The Mercat Cross


This postcard shows a Proclamation at the Mercat Cross in the Royal Mile (immediately to the east  of St Giles Church.

The postcard was posted in Edinburgh on 2 November 1906, but there is no mention on either the front or back of the card as to what was being proclaimed.

Thank you to Kim Traynor who wrote:


"There was a General Election in January 1906 which resulted in a landslide victory for the Liberal Party. I think this is probably a photograph of the proclamation for the summoning of the new Parliament that year.
