Today's vintage postcard blog update focuses on Edinburgh, Scotland. It's a subject I've covered before with different postcards, but the reason for paying a second visit is that my wife will be running the Edinburgh Marathon on 23rd May in aid of cancer relief, and almost certainly be running past many of these sites. Some of the family and a few friends are travelling up to support her, and we're also taking the opportunity to have a few days holiday while we're there (assuming the blisters aren't too bad). I've not been to Scotland for years so am really looking forward to the trip. I'm also really looking forward to driving there as it's been a while since we've been "on the road".
Scott Monument by the artist Bowers, c.1906, published in the Misch and Stock's Nature Miniatures series, number 224.
