Edinburgh Calotype Club Album

 Volume 2  -  Montgomery Family's Album

Views

Volume 2 of the Edinburgh Calotype Club, held by Edinburgh Central Library contains 126 calotype photos, both landscapes and portraits. 

Landscapes in the album include views of Edinburgh and St Andrews, together with three views of Lacock Abbey probably the work of  William Henry Fox Talbot.

It is not clear what connection Talbot had with the Calotype Club, but he is known to have had extensive correspondence with Sir David Brewster of St Andrews and to have sent examples of his work to Brewster in the early 1840s.  So perhaps a few of these examples found their way into the Calotype Album.
