Portobello from the Pier

The View

This view from Portobello Pier looks to the south-east, across a busy Portobello Beach, towards the Promenade that runs from Portobello to Joppa.

The Message

This card was sent from Edinburgh to Tayport, Scotland, on 16 Aug 1902.  This card was sent at the end of the era when the message had to be written on the front of the card and only the address written on the back.  In this case, the message is brief:

"15/8/02. 

We are up here for the afternoon. 

Just off now for tea.  Rain coming."
