Another postcard returned from Canada, Thanks again Hilary. One of the postcards is dated 1914 and says that the herring fishing is very poor because of the war. I am unable to see the front and back at the same time so not sure which one

This postcard was sent from Stronsay in 1909 by my great aunt Elizabeth Shearer to her husband Thomas Croy who had gone to Canada to join his brother. The family were reunited in Canada. The writing on the front of the card says "Hen's stride and your at Feaston" (the family home)
