The Date?

Thank you to Jan Weijers, Netherlands for allowing me to reproduce this photo and other old photos of Edinburgh.

The photo above was taken by J Patrick.  Would this have been John Patrick (1830-1923) or his son, James (b.1863)?

-  John Patrick had photographic studios in Edinburgh,1884 to 1888
and possibly later.

-  John Patrick & Son had a studio in Edinburgh from 1890 to 1895.

-  John Patrick & Son had a studio in Edinburgh 1896 to 1912 .

-  James Patrick had studios in Edinburgh, 1895 to 1907.

I've not yet  researched the date of this photo.  Perhaps somebody else will be able to do a little research and let me know what they find.

The View

This view looks to the east down the Royal Mile.  John Knox House is the house jutting out into the street from the left, in the centre of this photo.

Thank you to Steven Oliver for commenting on the old lamp posts in these two photos.  Both photos are of the High Street:

- The first looks to the west, up the street,  from St Giles' Church.

- The second looks to the east, down the street, to John Knox House.

"I'm not entirely sure of the make of lantern but I can identify the columns - they are Mackenzie Bros/Mackenzie & Moncur No.101s, identical to the two surviving examples in Forth Street."

An illustration of this No 101 column appears in the Mackenzie and Moncur street lighting catalogue.  It is the left-hand illustration on the page below..
