Montgomery was the last surviving member of the Edinburgh Calotype Club.
Minto, City Librarian and Curator, 1962, records
the words of Miss MA Montgomery, niece of Dean Montgomery, describing
two albums of photographs from the Edinburgh Calotype Club.
photographs were taken by our uncle James Francis Montgomery and by some
of his friends in the early days of photography before he was ordained a
clergyman and while he was studying for the Bar in Edinburgh and while
living with his parents at 17 Athol Crescent."
efforts to discover the whereabouts of the second of the Calotype Club's
albums have so far proved fruitless. Nor has it been possible to
show that it has not survived."
