Possibly Hogmanay 1913
Reproduced with acknowledgement to Margeorie Mekie, Portobello, Edinburgh
Outdoor Curling Match
Thank you to Margeorie Mekie, Portobello, Edinburgh
for allowing me to reproduce this postcard, and to Archie Young, Moredun,
Edinburgh for telling me about this postcard in response to a question about one
of my own photographs.
The photo at the top of this page,
other Duddingston curling photos from Margeorie's
collection, certainly show that my photo was taken at
I like the outdoor light for these
rinks. There seems to be a lot of concentration from the
participants and from the children beside the fence.
Were all these photos taken on the
same occasion - the Final of the Belfrage Cup, played on
December 31, 1913?
