Here is another postcard
Reginald Phillimore - a view
of Argyll Tower and its Portcullis Gate, first
erected by David II.
Argyll Tower is now reached a short distance after
entering the grounds of Edinburgh Castle. The scene looks very
similar today to the sketch above.
The postcard includes illustrations of Archibald
Campbell and his son, also Archibald Campbell, both of whom were imprisoned
in Argyll Tower before being executed in 1661 and 1685 respectively.
The reproduction of the postcard above
appeared in the book 'The Work of Reginald P Phillimore in Old Picture
Postcards' by Donald Lindgren [ISBN 90 288 5264 6 / CIP].
