Postcard - Finstown from the air

Date is a wild guess. Perhaps some local historian could date it more accuratley? The card was not posted but there is a message on the back "This is Finstown from the air, Do you recognise any places?" Note the inked cross on the house in the bottem left. I would welcome any comments.

Probably late 30s. The then new school is built. House with cross is Stenaquoy home of the Horries

Our house stands at the bottom of Heddle Road, and I believe it was built about 1926, so I think the date is nearers Ed's date than Ian's.

Stenaquoy was my grandparents home. Thomas and Isabella Horrie and their children Edith, James and Mary (my mother).
