Newspapers

I have read these newspapers and added information from them to the EdinPhoto site

I have read extracts from several of the newspapers below, looking mainly for advertisements for photographers and exhibitions. 

In the case of newspapers before 1839, I was looking mainly for adverts for edinburgh  transport.

 See Edinburgh 1958 page
