Loch Ness One Hundred Years Ago

I saw this century old postcard on eBay and wondered if Loch Ness was really such a quiet place before the Nessie craze started twenty years later. Mind you, if anyone saw a strange, triangular hump back then, this photo would no doubt provide a ready explanation. As an aside, there are three references to strange things being seen in (and out of) Loch Ness in 1912.

The ebay listing said: "Published by W. Fraser, Photographer, Lochend, Inverness. Postally used 1912". First to reach Fort Augustus wins the prize?
