Piershill Barracks

Early 1900s

The View

Piershill Barracks were situated to the east of Jock's Lodge, on the northern side of Portobello Road, the main road from Edinburgh to Portobello.

The Postcard

This postcard was sold by H Adamson, Stationer, Piershill, Edinburgh. It is the only card that I have seen bearing H Adamson's name.

The card was posted from Edinburgh to Broxburn, Scotland in 1916.  Neither the publisher nor the photographer is named on this card.

Portobello Beach

Here is a view of horses from the Piershill Barracks being exercised on the nearby Portobello Beach:
