The National Galleries and Edinburgh Castle

Here is an early postcard, with an undivided back and the message written on the front.  This was how postcards were used in Britain until 1902.

The stamp on the card is Queen Victoria (upside down!) - but is this the original stamp that was used on the card?  The frank mark extends over the whole stamp but not over the surrounding card.
