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.

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

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.
