Parkhill House, Aberdeenshire

Parkhill House in Dyce Aberdeenshire was the home of Florence (Dolly) Crombie, nee Showell. Dolly was the younger sister of Hannah Pitt Downing by some 19 years and she had married James Edward Crombie on 4 Sep 1895 in Enville, Staffordshire. The Crombie family are most famous for the Crombie coat. A portrait of Mrs J E Crombie now hangs in Aberdeen Art Gallery.

Dolly's niece, Mary Downing was a visitor on a number of occasions to Parkhill House. The attached postcard is signed "with love from Aunt Dolly Crombie". Mary was almost certainly a bridesmaid at her Aunt's wedding.
