The postcard of Holyrood
Palace in winter was posed
in Edinburgh on 6 December 1904, apparently following
winter conditions. It is written to Miss Mary who had
left on a journey by ship to Scalloway in Shetland off the
north coast of Scotland. The message begins:
My dear Miss Mary,
Mrs G was very anxious
to go down and see you off on Sunday night but owing to the
storm we retired early and dreamt of you instead. Did
you experience that. ...
We earnestly hope that
you have not made up your mind never to return.
