Sherri T's Great Grandmother's Post Cards


Maybe the grey day is influencing my choice as I am sending some black and white cards today.

#34 - The text on the front reads "South Broomage & Torwood Hall, Larbert". Not sure where Larbert is located.
Postmarked May 20, 1904 and appears to be from Mary to a Mrs. R Tait in Dunoon. Could be her mother? Mary writes "My holidays are put off for a time so wont be on Saturday hoping you are all well"

#35 - The text on the front reads "The Pavillion, Dunoon". I have been reading a bit on Dunoon and it is more accessible by the sea than by land. It is the largest town in the county of Argyll and in the 1800's, a place where wealthy Glaswegians built their riverside villas; and slightly less wealthy Glaswegians to spend their holidays.

Postmarked Sept. 9, 1907 and is from Mary to Richard. No message, just the card. Richard was in Montreal at the time on Versailles Street. I am pretty sure they married in Montreal. Now to find where the records are!!

Thanks Sherri T
