Historylinks Year: 1906
Monochrome postcard, part of the collection sent to members of the Postcard in the Forsyth family collection, the front of which (the Previous image picture #2560) shows a photograph with inscription 'Dornoch Castle' with a handwritten messge written below, including date 2/4/06. It is notable that this postcard bearing the address of Miss Joan Forsyth, c/o Mrs A Carnegie in Hot Springs, Virginia was posted in Clashmore on 2 April 1906 and reached Hot Springs, USA by 12 pm 12 April. In the period when crossing of the Atlantic was by liner, the transit time of only 10 days is remarkable at a cost of a one penny, red Edward V11 postage stamp!
