Good Evening All. This a GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD, unposted with the inevitable plain back so no clues! It looks like lodge gates to me, but where? click here

I think it is pre-1951, looking at the uniforms of the military in the crowd. Vehicles are a little old for 1951. AitchBEE - don't tell Brumas your weak points, he will only play on them. I enjoyed a good weekend in Glasgow a fortnight ago, but they were painting the Tardis, so I'll have to return to get the photos I wanted some other time.

Looks like the area around Holrood Palace, Edinburgh

I think the 5 is a sloppily written 3, and this is 1931 not 51

That would explain the cars and the dress styles and the heads that are all hatted.

morddwyd, On closer scrutiny it does look, as you say, sloppily written. I still am none the wiser as to the location though.

You would think if it was in the Uk a massive big church with a massive big clock on it would be easily recognised.

If visiting abroad no doubt they would probably take there own cars just to show off British workmanship.

I would say part of a large church or maybe part of some University.but where.

Surely a backwards written figure 2, 1921 would be more the year of those vehicles.
