- Source: eBay UK
This is a heavy gauge, gloss finish, tinted, photo card publishedin their ‘Glossy Photo Print Series’ by Davidson & Sons of Kirkaldy. It was sent from Peterhead by O/T Arthur Johnston M/2 1023, HMS Arctic Whale 878 c/o GPO. Its stamp is attached and it’s postmarked for 29 May 1916. That postmark was a shade heavy and has left a partial embossment near the bottom LH corner just left of those children playing in the stream, but it’s not easy to see when viewed head on. There’s light corner and edge wear; and there’s a triangle of diagonal crumples/cracks/creases at the very bottom RH corner which just touches the tip of the image (see scan) but otherwise it’s in pretty good condition for its age and type.My P&P rates are UK free; Europe 1.10 GBP; Rest of the World 1.90 GBP Next working day despatch after payment cleared.
