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.

Photograph of an outdoor curling match  -  Where and when?

The photo at the top of this page, and other Duddingston curling photos from Margeorie's collection, certainly show that my photo was taken at Duddingston.

I like the outdoor light for these rinks.  There seems to be a lot of concentration from the participants and from the spectators, apart from a couple of the children who seem to be more interested in the camera.

But were all these photos taken on the same occasion - the Final of the Belfrage Cup, played on December 31, 1913?
