Post Cards  -  WH Series  -    Berlin

Edinburgh Castle,  Scott Monument and National Galleries

The card above is one of many produced by WH of Berlin.  These cards all show buildings in Britain (and abroad?) with cut-out windows and moon, intended to be held up to the light for effect.

This was a postcard from the early years of divided backs (where both the address and the message were written on the same side of the card.  The line dividing the card left more space for the address than for the message - but this was not necessary in this case!

This card was posted in Edinburgh on 29 March 1904 to a destination in Perthshire about fifty miles to the north.   The address was simply written as:  "Miss Cree, Meigle".    See below.

This view looks to the west along Princes Street, towards:

-  the Scott Monument

-  the National Galleries

Edinburgh Castle
