Far A Far Cottages

Cramond

The front of the Postcard

Here is a busy scene at Far A Far cottages, Cramond. 

This row of cottages is still standing (in 2005).  They are on the northern side of Whitehouse Road, close to its junction with School Brae, which leads down to the River Almond. 

The back of the Postcard

This postcard writer in 1905 seem to be still coming to terms with writing a message on the back of a postcard.  This was first permitted a couple of years earlier.

Here, the writer has turned the card upside down before starting his message, and has completed the message by writing 'across the message' as can be found on some early letters.  The message here reads:

"I send this view that perhaps will remind you of the happy days gone by.  Wishing Jim is all better and the rest keeping well.  Kind regards.  J G B.

How sad about Mr Scott.  Saw Mrs S tonight and she is looking for a letter from you.  Thinks her letter to you has not reached."
