This postcard was sent from Jack Shearer (my uncle) to his Canadian cousin Thomas Croy in 1927 when both boys were 9 years old. I doubt if the 2 boys ever met. The inscription on the back reads- Dear Tom, This is photo of Grannies house & our house. Frankie has been ill. I miss him a lot. I go to see him for 1 hour every day. Jackie. ( Frankie was another Stronsay cousin of the same age)
