Thank you to Pieter Grootes, Best, The Netherlands, for telling me that he has a photo in his family collection by John Moffat 123 Princes Street  which he believes was taken in 1913.  I have also seen what appear to be discrepancies between some of the addresses given in the directories and on Moffat's cartes de visite.  I believe that 123 and 125 will both refer to the same studio which was perhaps expanded to take in both buildings.
