Royal Photographic Society

PhotoHistorian Supplement - Edinburgh

Updates
 from August 2001 to date

Updates

The PhotoHistorian supplement for Edinburgh photographers: 'Professional Photographers in Edinburgh, Leith and Portobello - 1840 to 1940' was published in August 2001

Since then, I have found a few more Edinburgh photographers, and some  further details of others.  Please see below for a list of updates:

Colours

Purple  is used to denote that part of an entry that has changed.  Some of the new entries have been added as a result of deciding to include South Queensferry as being within Edinburgh.  (It was well outside the boundary in C19, but is inside now.)

On looking again at this list, I believe that many of the purple entries in Col 1 should have in fact been coloured black.
