The Postcard

There is no publisher's name on this postcard.

The card has not been sent through the post, but I have another postcard of Victoria Hall, possibly published at the same time, that was sent through the post on June 3, 1913.

See below.

Question

Fairley's

Bob Henderson wrote:

"I wonder if it is just a coincidence that the name Fairley appears on this picture, or if they were connected to the Fairley's  we all new and loved."

Bob Henderson, Burdiehouse, Edinburgh

 

Reply
