Start Lighthouse, Sanday 364/1 - Belmont Series

The date is a guess, based on the dates on other postcards in my album. The same lighthouse as picture #7979 - this view could be earlier or later - the date on #7979 is a guess as well. There are windows in #7979 - none here that I can see.
The card was sent to Mrs. John Moodie, Bridge St. Wynd, and it says, " Just a PC to say I am getting on A1 and enjoying the sunshine everyday. You should have stayed out, I got tanned. I've seen no rain since the day I came here. You brought the rain. Hope you are both well, take a look to Ayre Road and see they are not entertaining gentlemen too often." Signed, (not very clearly and I could be wrong) Bob Drever.
