Douglas Glass, great-grandson of Richard
Stuart Brown writes:
"At the time of his
marriage, in 1864, Richard Stuart Brown's occupation was
recorded as a photographer. Although there is no
evidence to support the theory, it is quite possible that he started
in business at 3 Hanover Street.
move to Brougham Street is well recorded, and he lived and worked in
the Tollcross area for the rest of his life.
His speciality was individual and
family photographs. I have a considerable number taken of his own
family which has provided an invaluable record.
The business was carried on
by one of his sons, Robert."
* There was
a photographer named Richard Brown listed in the
Edinburgh trade directories at 3 Hanover Street in 1863-64.
