Postcard by Alex A Inglis  -  Edinburgh Castle from Johnstone Terrace       The back of a postcard by Alex A Inglis  -  Edinburgh Castle from Johnstone Terrace

Ingle Series

Alex Inglis, photographers at Rock House, Edinburgh produced cards in the Ingle Series.  His son, Francis Caird Inglis, also produced postcards of Edinburgh, though I have only seen two of these in the Ingle Series.  Both have the 'AI monogram on the front.

Edinburgh Castle was a popular subject for both photographers, Alex A Inglis and Francis Caird Inglis.

These cards have an 'Ingle Series logo with the City of Edinburgh Coat of Arms on the back.  Alex Inglis' cards also have an 'AI' monogram on the front. Some of his cards were produced in monochrome and colour, the same number being given to both varieties.

On the back of some of these cards there is a brief account of the history of the subject of the card,  e.g. Edinburgh Castle.

Edinburgh Castle was a popular subject for both Alex A Inglis and his son, Francis Caird Inglis.  Here are the postcards of Edinburgh that I have found by Francis Caird Inglis.

1.  Views of  The Scottish National War Memorial, Edinburgh Castle

Sepia

These cards all bear the legend: 'Francis Caird Inglis, Photogrpaher to His Majesty in Edinburgh', and have a brief description of the subject, on the back of the card.

Many have numbers in the stamp box.  The numbers I have seen range from 1 to 36, but some numbers are duplicated for 'Castle' and 'other' views.

(a)  'Nine Post Cards  1/-' pack

There is a note on the back of the pack saying: 'Large photographs of any of these pictures may be obtained.'  These brief titles of the contents are listed on the front of the pack:

-  Gallery of Honour

-  South East Bay

-  Royal Scots Memorial

-  Cameron Highlanders' Memorial

-  Nursing Services Memorial

-  Women's Services Memorial

-  Mercantile Marine Memorial

-  Royal Naval Memorial.

The contents of my pack differed a little from the descriptions on the front of the pack. The third card in the pack appears to have been substituted by a variation of the second card. My pack contains cards titled:

-  Scottish National War Memorial from the South West  No Number

-  Scottish National War Memorial Gallery of Honour.  View looking west.    No Number

-  Scottish National War Memorial Gallery of Honour.  View looking west.    11

Question

NOTE:  Alan Provan tells me that he has most of the cards in this series up to  No 38.  He is trying to complete the series, and wonders if No 38 is the highest number in the series.  If you can answer this question, please email me, then I'll pass on your message to Alan.  Thank you.  -  Peter Stubbs:  May 28, 2009
