Highland Cattle on Skye
Thank you to Gordon
Stewart for allowing me to reproduce two of his photographs, taken
by Charles Reid of Wishaw. Charles Reid took many wildlife
photographs. He gave lectures to Edinburgh Photographic
Society on animal and bird photography in 1882, 1890 and 1896.
Gordon tells me:
two framed photos by
Charles Reid, dates unknown.
photos are approx
24.5cms x 18.5cms.
The photo above is
marked on the back of the mount, 'C Reid', 'Loch Fada, Skye. (Storr
Rock on Hill)'.
These photos were given to my parents, who lived in Perth, Scotland,
by a Charles Reid, who lodged with them in the 1950ís. Iíd guess he
would have been born, say, 1890 to 1900, and died 1959-62. He
said to my parents that the photos were his fatherís work."
