Postcard sent from the Isle of Tiree to a Miss E. Nisbit, of Giffnock, Renfrewshire, ca 1950. The image is an ariel photograph of Scarinish and is in sepia. The handwriting is faded, so the name of the sender is unclear, but the surname appears to be McColl. The content is also difficult to read, but there is talk of the weather, typically, sunshine and gales. The photographic image was taken by Wm. Thomson of Fort William. Two 1D postage stamps feature King George VI, dating the postcard to his reign (1936-1952).
