Millport 1913 Holidaymakers
 

This photo is on the front of a stamped, franked, postcard addressed to
Mr. ??? Corstorphine
c/o Ross
71 Prince Albert Street
Crosshill
Glasgow
  The message is
     "You will easily find me out.
                                           May   "

Underneath Annie Corstorphine Cowan has written
"No idea who May is"
(Annie was born May 3rd 1913)
You'd think the message might have included something like "Hope you're coping with the sleepless nights" or something.

  Dated June 18th 1913
This must be Millport Beach just in front of Crocodile Rock.
I think the building in the background with the wrought iron fence round its roof still exists and is the toilets. (The wooden building looks like toilets too tho.)
Could May be William Corstorphine's sister? (Same name as his first born). And if so would that not have been his mother's name too?
How they got so many folks to congregate for a photo all dressed up? Must have been a Sunday and they probably just came out of church.
Crosshill is just north of Mount Vernon, Hampden Park
