the Cabinet Prints
From the cards that I have seen it appears that John McKean specialised in
photographing groups. See:
- large groups in 1, 2, 3 and 5 below.
Who are they?
- family groups in 4, 6, 10, 11 and 12 below.
Most portraits that I have seen
from the studios of Edinburgh's professional photographers in the 19th
century are of ladies.
However, based on the photos
that I have collected, John McKean appears to have photographed more
men than ladies.
