Postcard by Valentine & Co  -  Edinburgh Castle and Galleries in winter İ

The postcard of Holyrood Palace in winter was posed in Edinburgh on 6 December 1904, apparently following  winter conditions.  It is written to Miss Mary who had left on a journey by ship to Scalloway in Shetland off the north coast of Scotland.  The message begins:

My dear Miss Mary,

Mrs G was very anxious to go down and see you off on Sunday night but owing to the storm we retired early and dreamt of you instead.  Did you experience that.  ...

We earnestly hope that you have not made up your mind never to return.
