While most postcards feature summer days and seaside themes, this one is refreshingly different. Turning the camera away from the sea, the view along part of Main Street is captured. Judging by the bare tree in the distance and the very well-dressed ladies, it is a cold winter day. The postcard was, however, posted in July of 1921. The sender was staying at 'The Haven', Largo and notes that she is "having a fine holiday and ideal weather. Children are enjoing boating, bathing, etc.". Meanwhile her husband is "keeping his hand in at golf". The ladies in the picture (enlarged below) have just past a row of shops on the right. Mrs Davie's shop was the lighter coloured one in the centre, while there was Scott's grocer (who in fact commissioned the postcard) and the Co-op on the ground floor of the building in the right foreground.
