Thank you to Bryan Gourlay for sending me this photograph of his great grandparents.

"Here is the only other photo I've been able to find of my great grandparents, Alexander and Jane Pringle, and their horse, Atholl. I guess this was taken around 1910.

They seem to have got dressed up in their finery - and bulled up the carriage and the horse especially for the photo session - particularly my great grandmother's hat.  They look so proud. They had come from absolute poverty forty odd years earlier - and here they are sitting in their fine carriage.

It's difficult to know here the picture was taken - probably in the city, as there is a pavement.  Looking at the background, and knowing where they lived, it could be around the Meadows or Bruntsfield.

There is no photographer's name - just references on the back probably from the person who mounted it on card."
