I do not know the date of publication of this card, but my copy is postmarked at Dornoch on the 9th August, 1910. I should like to know the date of the event and any other information about it. The card was sent by Mrs. Mack(?) to a Miss Case in Bromley, Kent.
Comment left on 18 June 2010 at 00:04 by Peter Cassidy Sadly we do not have any further information about this card. picture #6926 appears to have the same ladies in it and that one is dated 29/02/1904 although I do not believe that the games took place in February. Image 4450, the same as 6926, has been dated to 1908. Both have the stamp of Edward VII so must be dated between 1901 and 1910 Administrator
