James Logan Mack

11 Jan 1888

A Tour in Norway with the Camera [joint lecture]


I was asked by Eric Robson, in June 2004, if James Logan Mack who gave this lecture was the person as James Logan Mack who published the book, THE BORDER LINE, in the 1920s.

Eric is trying to track down biological details of the author of this book.

Greg Cuthbert also contacted me (on June 21, 2007) asking what i knew about James Logan Mack.  So I've now added the brief paragraphs about him, below.

If you know anything amore about him, please e-mail me Thank you

I believe that the book which has the full title: 'THE BORDER LINE from the Solway Firth to the North Sea along the Marches of Scotland and England' was first published in 1924.

However, the edition most frequently found now appears to be that published in 1926 by Oliver & Boyd (335pp,  119 illustrations by Donald Scott and others.)

I now see the reason for Eric Robson's interest in James Logan Mack.  Eric also wrote a book entitled 'THE BORDER LINE' describing his own journey following the 105 mile route of James Logan Mack.  Eric's book was published by The Wainwright Society [ISBN 0-7112-2589-3] possibly around 2004.

Eric's book includes 3 or James Logan Mack's original maps, described as being 80 years old.  Eric describes James Logan Mack as an Edinburgh Lawyer in the 1920s.

I think it quite likely that the J Logan Mack who gave the lecture to Edinburgh Photographic Society in 1888 was the man who wrote 'The Border Line.  Both men (if indeed there were two) had connections with Edinburgh Photographic Society.

It was common practice at Edinburgh Photographic Society for there to be exhibition entertainment during the society's photographic exhibitions that were open to the public.

The exhibition entertainment on February 24, 1923 included a lecture by J Logan Mack entitled:  'THE BORDER LINE from the Solway to the North Sea'.

Thank you to Martin Knibbs who e-mailed me on 28 July 2005 to tell me that he had  just put on eBay a letter to a James L Mack Esq.1 Hanover Street, Edinburgh, with a postmark of 22 Apr 1879.  He did not know whether or not this was the same person as above.

However, at the time that the letter was sent, one of the occupants at 1 Hanover Street was the professional photogrpaher Member, Alexander Ayton who went on to become EPS President in 1894.

Thank you to Heather Maloney who wrote:

"I am a descendant of James Logan Mack. Our family has been in Australia for 5 generations, of their own free will, I might add.

Our last Edinburgh relative passed away, as far as I know, about 35 years ago.  I am also keen to find out more about this gentleman and other members of my family.

I do believe that there was more than one James Logan Mack, as family names have been very strictly passed down
