It's not a postcard. I know it looks like one, but it isn't. This is one of those photographic mysteries that a photo collector runs into from time to time. It looks like a commercially produced image for sale to the tourist trade. But then again, if this was a pro shot, wouldn't the photographer have removed the clothing thrown on the ground beside the child? And wouldn't he have moved the parked car out of the frame? Then again, even in 1926 Scotland, which is what's written on the back of the photo, how often would a person run into a scene like this? Perhaps mom took a picture of husband and son on the way to the Highland games.
