Photograph from Robert Turnbull's Studio, Portobello  -  Four in a Boat

Studio Photo  -  Portobello

The photograph above is about postcard size.  (5.1 ins x 3.7 ins.)  In fact it probably is a postcard.  Many studio portraits in the early 20th century were produced as postcards, though I have seldom seen any that have been sent through the post.

The photo has been mounted on board about 9.5 ins x 7 ins. 

The studio 'boat' is on a support painted to match the sea in the backdrop. 

This view looks from the sea back towards Portobello Pier and Edinburgh, with Arthur's Seat, the extinct volcano 823 ft high in Queen's Park, in the background.
