Edinburgh from The West

Tuck's "Oilette" series

Here is  a postcard from the Raphael Tuck & Sons' "Oilette" Edinburgh series (7293). 

This card reproduces a painting by John Blair

This card has not been sent through the post.

Tuck's description on the back of this card reads:

"Edinburgh 'the grey metropolis of the North' need fear no rival in its claim to be the most picturesque city in the United Kingdom. 

Viewed from any point the prospect reveals such variety in landscape and such beauty of colour that it provoked Washington Irving to state 'Of all the cities in the modern world, Edinburgh is the most beautifully situated'."

This is one of three distant views of Edinburgh and its castle that I have seen from the "Oilette" Edinburgh series (7293).

Here are the other two:
