South Queensferry, Scotland

Queensferry

You have to love this postcard, with well-clad postal ladies and a bicycle at the ready, a humble yet eager post office serving the people of South Queensferry. Part of the City of Edinburgh, the town took its name from St. Margaret of Scotland (1045-1093), wife of Malcolm III, King of Scots. While his Queen Consort, she crossed the Firth of Forth here, by ferry, to visit her chapel in Edinburgh Castle.
