The Ship

Thank you to John Gordon for sending me the photograph above.  It comes from an Album of Photos and Postcards that that was kept during World War I by his great Aunt, Emily Borrowman, when she worked in the Post Office at South Queensferry.

John added:

"it appears that Emily spent almost all of WWI at South Queensferry, working at the Post Office.  When the Grand Fleet was in the Forth this must have been a busy Post Office."
