Edinburgh Castle from Greyfriars

The View

The postcard above shows the Scottish National Memorial at Edinburgh Castle.  The inscription above the door reads:

TO THE GLORY OF GOD & IN

MEMORY OF SCOTS WHO FELL

1914    1918.

The legend at the bottom of the card reads:

SCOTTISH NATIONAL MEMORIAL

-  EDINBURGH CASTLE  -

OPENED BY

HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES

JULY 1927

The figure at the top of the card is presumably the Prince of Wales.

The Postcard Publisher

This is the only Edinburgh card that I have seen by this publisher, Scholastic Co, Bispham, Blackpool.  The card has not been sent through the post but may well have been published shortly after the opening of the Memorial.
