George Washington Wilson

Nelson's Monument on Calton Hill

George Washington Wilson of Aberdeen, like James Valentine of Dundee, produced a very large number of views of Scotland in the 19th century.  Both companies sold their prints individually and mounted into albums.

The image below is taken from an albumen print, approx 5.25 ins x 8 ins. The title of the photograph is Nelson's Mont., Calton Hill, Edinburgh.  This monument to Nelson is in the shape of an upturned telescope.

The photograph [No.163G.W.W.] was one of the earliest of George Washington Wilson's photos.  I have not yet discovered the date when it was taken.
