H J Dagg

Thank you to John Gordon for sending me the photograph above.  It comes from an Album of Photos and Postcards that that was kept during World War I by his great Aunt, Emily Borrowman, when she worked in the Post Office at South Queensferry.

John added:

"it appears that Emily spent almost all of WWI at South Queensferry, working at the Post Office.  When the Grand Fleet was in the Forth this must have been a busy Post Office."

Comparing this photo with others with that have similar furnishings and backdrop,

it seems likely that the photo at the top of this page would have been taken at Peter McGill's studio on Hawes Pier, Queensferry.
