No Nice Boys Yet

More from the Bee family! The Bee family lived in the Rosemount Buildings in Edinburgh, Scotland. This card was sent to Chrissie Bee from her friend Isa.
Here's the back of the card:
The message reads:
Dear Chrissie,
How do you like this. I am enjoying myself #1.
But have seen no nice boys as yet.
Yours with love

The Rosemount Buildings were built in 1860 and are now part of Edinburgh's West End Conservation District. They were unusual in that they were built of red brick with yellow brick accents, instead of traditional stone. You can read more about the conservation area here at the Friends of Gardner's Crescent.

  6. I'm reminded of a Barbara Stanwyck line from Remember the Night: "If all men were as square [honest] as you, there wouldn't be any nice girls left!"

  7. What a cute message! And I am intrigued by the woman in the photograph! Wedding or confirmation attire?
