Edwards, AR & Son Selkirk

Postcard by A R Edwards & Son  -  Entrance to the Shrine, Scottish National War Memorial

Andrew  R Edwards was a professional photographer in the Scottish Borders, with studios at 33 Tower Street, Selkirk (1882-1913) then 73 Tower Street (from 1914).  His son was Robert Edwards.

At the time of the 1881 census, he had two children, the first aged 3, born Aberdeen; the second aged 4 months, born Dalmeny, West Lothian.

He produces some attractive atmospheric postcards of Edinburgh (Princes Street Gardens and other locations) together with many of the popular sites around the centre of Edinburgh.  The cards are numbered.  These are the ones that I have seen:

Elliot, Andrew  17 Princes Street, Edinburgh

The Forth Rail Bridge and the ferry boat, Dundee, on the Queensferry Passage at South Queensferry  -  between 1920 and 1948

I have seen the name, Andrew Elliot, printed on only one postcard - a view of the Forth Bridge published by Valentines in 1930.

- Forth Bridge  (No.208603)    Not posted

Eroscot Art  Queen Margaret Gallery, The Vennel, South Queensferry, Edinburgh

I've only seen one postcard from this publisher, though there are no doubt others.  It is a sketch of Edinburgh Castle in blue, white and orange.  It is titled:

"Edinburgh Castle from the Brown Derby"  -  posted May 13, 1970

Don't ask me what the 'Brown Derby' is!

This card was presumably posted shortly after the gallery opened.  The card says:  "The gallery was opened to commemorate the 900th anniversary of Queen Margaret's marriage in 1070 to Malcolm Canmore, King of Scots"

The back of the postcard advertises the gallery:  "Murals and portraits commissioned.  Scottish Fine Art Reproductions and Greetings Cards.  Exhibitions and contemporary paintings by Scottish artists in your home or office."

-  Ewart, J D, Ltd Glasgow

These postcards have an emblem with intertwined letters JDE within a wreath.  Te only card that I have seen from this publisher is in Malcolm Cant's collection.

Not posted or dated, but this is a photograph of the 930s Ross Bandstand
