This image of Bessie Flucker, dressed in Newhaven
fishwives' costume is taken from a sepia portrait photographed in the studio of
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.
