Portobello West Bay

The View

This view from Portobello Pier looks to the south-west, across  Portobello Beach, with its lines of rowing boats, towards the mansions on the promenade, and the potteries and other industry beside the promenade at the western end of Portobello.

The Message

This card was sent from Edinburgh to Annan, Scotland, on 20 July 1904.  The message read:

"Here for 1/2 hour.  Sailing home.  Unfortunately, it is going to rain.  We are sitting on the Promenade."
