"I found it interesting that this card
states, '75 Princes St, Edinburgh and Aberdour'. The back is blank.
The gent on the horse is my great grandfather,
Henry (Harry) Shiels. I'm unsure who the fellow is on the right.
My great grandfather was born in 1872 in Edinburgh.
He stayed in Kirkcaldy before moving to Canada circa 1913. He married in 1894. I do
wonder if this was a pic was taken prior to his leaving Scotland.
The pipe is not a
prop; he did smoke one!
I'd be interested to know when you think the
pic was taken when you have the time."
