Edinburgh Castel from the Grassmarket

The View

This view looks from the southern side of the Grassmarket to the north-west towards Edinburgh Castle, high on Castle Hill. 

King's Stable Road leads out of the picture on the left, towards the West End of Princes Street.

Most of  buildings seen on the north side of the Grassmarket and the Castle look very similar today.

The Postcard

This is the only postcard that I have seen from this series.  The card was posted in 1928.  How many cards were there in this series and how were these cards distributed?
