Portobello  Pier

Here is an attractive postcard of Portobello Pier, in pastel shades. 

At first I thought there was no publisher's name on the card; then I found  Valentines Series in the pebbles above No 30349 at the the bottom right-hand corner.

[University of St Andrews Valentine Collection booklet:  published by St Andrews University Library]

This card has not been sent through the post, but the number on the card indicates that the photo used for this card was taken in 1899.

Here is another postcard produced from the same negative:

Portobello Pier  -  A Valentine Postcard, published in the 1910s

Here are two more views of Portobello - one with the pier, one with it removed from the picture:

A Rough Sea at Portobello  -  A view including Portobello Pier  -  A Valentine Postcard, based on a 1913 negative.     A Rough Sea at Portobello  -  A view without Portobello Pier  -  A Valentine Postcard, based on a 1913 negative.
