Cabinet Print

The cabinet print above is an unusual, outdoor one.  Does anybody recognise the location or the subject?  The back of the card is blank.  There is a number '123' chalked on the fence, but this may well have no connection with the house number.

I have found no record of this company in the Edinburgh trade directories.  Might it have been the name that John Greenfield gave to his company?  He worked from 5a Annandale Street from 1916 to 1919.

Another Photo

I have only seen two prints from Photo Company of 5a Annandale Street.  Both are cabinet print size and both are views taken on doorsteps.

Here is the other photo.

Thank you to Steve for sending me the photo below produced by Photo Company, 5a Annandale Street, Edinburgh.

That's the third photo that I've seen from this company.  All three are of people standing in front doorways.

"Iím guessing the woman in the photo is a relative who was born in 1839 and died in 1913  and that the building was in Thistle Street, Cowdenbeath (if my guess is correct)

To be honest, I think the woman looks older than 74, perhaps mid-80s - but didnít they all look older back then?
