Here is a view of the tram passing the links at Cockenzie on the Firth of Forth.  The scene on the links looks remote, though it is only about ten miles from the centre of Edinburgh.

The message on the postcard, posted to Edinburgh on 28 August 1919 is:

"I hope you are well.  We are all well here.  Cecil running wild .  We sit on the beach and take nice walks up in the country.  I have only had one wet day.  Kind regards."
