'Thursday' - 'Tomorrow will be Friday' Loch Ness Monster at Fort Augustus

This postcard, entitled 'Thursday' - 'Tomorrow will be Friday', shows a painted depiction of group of monks fishing on the banks of Loch Ness, with Fort Augustus in the background. One of the monks has caught the Loch Ness Monster on his line, and the others are endeavouring to help him land it.

The scene is interesting because it portrays the monks outside their traditional sombre and devout stereotype.

The abbey at Fort Augustus used to run a small publishing company from the printing press in its basement, and it is possible that this postcard was published by the monks themselves.
