Furness Postcard Collection -  Lairg
Furness Postcard Collection - Lairg

Tinted postcard from the Furness Collection with an oval central photograph of Loch Shin with surrounding wording 'Greetings from Lairg' and four surrounding photographs of : a salmon leaping the Falls of Shin, Loch Shin loch side, Carbisdale Castle and the Sutherland Arms Hotel, Lairg
Picture added on 24 April 2008
The photo in the centre was taken long after 1930, as the Shin Dam, pictured, was constructed in the late 1950s, about the same time as a row of council houses at the very left of that picture. Council houses of a slightly older vintage are also visible in the photo bottom left. I am 72 and have known Lairg since infancy.

Many thanks for your comment, I will amend the date to 1960 - Administrator

If this is either a Whiteholm or earlier J B White postcard it can be dated exactly by my friend the retired owner of both companies
