Jim wonders if anybody else
has a photograph with the same inscription, and if they can tell him when
his photo might have been taken. His estimate is '1870-81, possibly
The only information that I
can provide is that Alex Ayton was based at '43 North Bruntsfield Place',
Edinburgh from 1881 to 1890. His business remained at the same
studio fro about another 50 years, but from 1891 onwards, the street was
named 'Bruntsfield Place.
I don't have any information
about the addresses and dates of the Ayton studios in Londonderry.
If you can help to answer
please e-mail me and I will pass on your message to him.
