Studios in Princes Street

1886 Photo

Murray & Campbell had a studio at 68 Princes Street, then at  60 Princes Street between 1875 and 1893.  The photograph above is dated 1886.

I'm a bit puzzled by this one.  There seem to be some feint buildings and chimneys in the background.  Is this part of a backdrop?  And what are the props in the lower-left corner of this picture.

Question

The photo above is from an album that has been donated to the Scottish Genealogy Society.  The inscription on the front of the album reads 'AG Fraser, Edinburgh, 1889'.

Most of the photos in the album are from studios in Edinburgh.  A few are from studios in Musselburgh, Leven, Walthamstow and Forfar & Kirriemuir.

Do you have any idea which family this album might have belonged to?  If so, please e-mail me, then I'll pass your message on to the Scottish Genealogy Society.

Thank you.    -  Peter Stubbs:  January 14, 2007.
