Jeanie wrote:

"I came upon this photograph in an antique shop in Perth, Canada.  I bought it purely for the subject matter.  I loved the little donkeys and the portable swimming cabana.

The photographer's stamp on the card upon which it is mounted reads "Edwards & Harrison,  Main St., Pembroke.  The caption in white ink on the mount reads:

'Beach near Portobello Pier  -  June 1900'."

Jeanie added:

"Many of the villages and towns in the area are named after places in Scotland because  these places were settled by Scottish immigrants.  Our little village has a  tiny river running through it called the Clyde!"
