Dr. Glen A. Izett asks if J Howie
Jun had a studio in Glasgow in 1860. He says that it
would have been easier for the family in his photo to have visited
a Glasgow studio than an Edinburgh studio.
None of his cartes de
visite in my collection show this address. However James Howie jun was listed in
the Glasgow trade directories as having a studio at 51 Buchanan
Street, Glasgow from 1865 until 1867. Perhaps some of his
photographs from that studio had his Edinburgh address on the
back. How likely is that?
Thank you to Peter Simpson, Brighton, Sussex, England for
sending me this example of a James Howie Jun. carte de visit.
On the back the addresses of the Edinburgh and Glasgow studios are
Buchanan Street, Glasgow
60 Princes Street,
