Postcard of the week – Portobello Beach pre 1920

Postcard of the week – Portobello Beach pre 1920

“Glorious day.  We were at the Zoo in the morning and spending the afternoon by the sea.”.  So said Andy when he sent this to F E Wilson Esq of Hornsey Road, London on the 12th October, 1920.  Which is my birthday by the way, should you wish to send cash.  October 12th that is, not 1920.  Anyway, it must have been freezing in October, so I’m guessing the picture, which would have been taken a few years earlier, was during the summer.  Oh, and if you’re wondering, it’s the East end of the prom, near Brunstane Road North.
