John Knox House

Postcard Publisher

The post card of John Knox House, above, was posted on 29 July 1901 from Edinburgh to Glasgow.

The publisher is not named, but the card has quite a distinctive style, so no doubt others will be able to identify the publisher. 

The card includes a brief description of John Knox House, and has a reproduction of the City of Edinburgh Coat of Arms, underneath the postmark.
