The Bass Rock under attack  -  1694

Here is a postcard of the Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth off North Berwick, by Reginald Phillimore.  A man-of-war ship fires at King James' castle on the Bass Rock.

The inscription on the bottom of the postcard reads:

"The Bass Rock: the last fortress that held out for King James,
surrendered 1694 after a siege of three years."

Reginald Philimore painted many views of this rock, which he could see from his studio in North Berwick.

This reproduction of the postcard above appeared in the book 'The Work of Reginald P Phillimore in Old Picture Postcards' by Donald Lindgren  [ISBN 90 288 5264 6 / CIP].

The postcard is reproduced here with acknowledgement to Rev. Donald Lindgren and European Library, Zaltbommel, Netherlands.
