Blairgowrie Advertiser

Bridge of Cally has always been popular with visitors


Dear Editor

I was reading the Blairgowri­e Advertiser recently while going through a pile of recently purchased old postcards.

It was interestin­g that one of these was a postcard of Bridge of Cally at the same time as your paper’s front page article featured the repairs to the bridge.

From what I can make out, the postcard appears to be from 1937.

The message on the back, sent to a Miss Seith in Broughty Ferry, states: “We arrived here on Saturday after a pleasant journey by rail and coach.

“The weather is delightful. There are quite a number of visitors here at present. Love to both from yours sincerely MH.”

In my opinion it just confirms that Bridge of Cally continues as a popular holiday destinatio­n, long after the rail service to Blairgowri­e ceased.

Bob Hynd,
