The Bass Rock

Here is a postcard of the Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth off North Berwick, by Reginald Phillimore.

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


Warships are in the background and an airship in the foreground.  Airships flew from the East Fortune airfield, four miles away, during the First World War.
