A street lamp is being repaired.
Four men are passing the time on the corner of the High Street and Brighton Place.
Trams, probably the number 21 or number 22, are going to and from Princes Street.
A policeman has a “word” with a young man on Portobello High Street.
Four men stand at the corner of Brighton Place and Portobello High Street, while two trams make their way along the road.

The sender of the postcard wrote “Good Old Portobello” upside down on the front of the card.
The card was sent on the 9th June 1903 to The Whim Farm, Lamancha.
