Studio Portrait

This image of Bessie Flucker, dressed in Newhaven fishwives' costume is taken from a sepia portrait photographed in the studio of Harper & Smellie between 1902 and 1904.

Harper & Smellie had studios at:

-  1899-1904:  163 Leith Walk

-  1902-1906:  130 Princes Street

-  1905-1908:  131,135 Leith Walk

Mr Smellie appears to have then left the business, leaving it to John Campbell Harper.  The business continued until 1988.
