NOTES on the PHOTOGRAPHERS
photograph, marked 'McP' was attributed to Robert MacPherson when the
Album was acquired by Edinburgh City Libraries. However
following further investigation, when the second album was acquired by
the National Library of Scotland, no evidence has been found that Robert
MacPherson was ever a Member of the Edinburgh Calotype Club. it is
now believed that the photographer is likely to have been James Calder
Similarly, photographs marked 'P' were
attributed to Mungo Ponton, but no evidence has been found that he was
ever a member of the Edinburgh Calotype Club. It is now believed that
these photographs are likely to have been taken by Hugh Lyon Playfair.
In the list above, there are 73 photos
listed as 'photograph [not known]'. However, the acquisition
Tennent album and
associated notes by the National Library of Scotland in 2001 has enabled
some [how many?] of these photos to be attributed.
