Comment 1

Sheldon Cunningham who supplied this photo wrote:

"Despite the distinctive tie and wide jacket collar, I have not been able to estimate a date from the clothing.  My guess is that this photo may be of a son of Neil Tunny."

Comment 2

Julian Bukits replied:

"James Good Tunny had two brothers, Andrew (b.1827) and John (b.1831).

I believe Andrew may have emigrated before 1851."

It is possible the man with the goatee beard in this photo might be John Tunny, seeing as we have it on record that he was in Edinburgh in 1887 prior to James Tunny's death. Assuming that the photo was taken at the latest date of 1886, this would make him about 55."

"Now that I have seen many of the sons of JG Tunny in these latest two pictures, I would like to withdraw my 'Comment 1 above.  I agree with Julian that this photo may well be of JGT's brother, John Tunny."
