Ardentinny 1909

This postcard published by M. Gardner of Ardentinny Post Office was mailed by a holidaymaker to a Kilmacolm address on 23 September, 1909. The Old School can be seen on left of picture. Can anyone name the donkey?

I believe the donkey is either Saco Bono (a veteran of the Boer War) or Brutus – my Grandmother lived at Glenfinart 1909-1926 and I was just reading her memories of ‘A childhood in Argyllshire!’


One of the star characters in Winnie-the-Pooh. (maybe spelt Eeyore, not too sure). A bit before my time too!


…wouldn’t be Eyore would it?
