This photograph of Victoria Park was taken in 1906 by Valentine & Sons.  The postcard was posted in 1909.

I have not yet discovered when Victoria Park was created, but I have seen correspondence in The Scotsman in the 1890s referring to it as Victoria Jubilee Park, so it may well have been 1887 or 1897.

Here is photograph of the children's playground and bandstand, also taken in Victoria Park in 1906.
