Other postcards that I have
seen in this series have been posted from 1904 onwards. The card
above was posted on June 7, 1909.
The card was sent from
Dunfermline to Dunbar in East Lothian. The message on the card was
appropriate to the picture. It read:
"I'm here today hearing the band.
The glen is just lovely.
I hope you are keeping well."
From 1902 onwards, the Post
Office in the UK allowed both a message and the address to be written on
the back of a postcard, so the manufacturers printed a line down the back
of the card, creating a 'divided back'.
The message on the left -hand
side of the division on this card reads:
THIS SPACE MAY BE USED FOR CORRESPONDENCE IN
Britain, The Colonies and British Possessions;
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Holland, Hungary,
Luxemburg, Mexico, Norway. Portugal, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland,
