Burlington Studios

 

22 Dalry Road

Studio

Burlington Studios were based at 22 Dalry Road from 1933 until 1954.  The photographer at Burlington Studio was A Mackay.

22 Dalry Road was The Haymarket Studio in 1904-05, and was the Port Arthur Studio [when?]. This address was a photographic studio and home to many photographers between 1894 and 1959.

I have several post-card size photograph from Burlington Studios:

-  one is a of a young baby, seated on a cushion beside a basket of flowers.

-  the other (below) is group portrait, complete with its Burlington folder.  Please click on the images below to enlarge them.

Question

Here are two other postcard-size portraits sent to me recently, with the question:  "When might the photographs have been taken?" 

My estimate is  "Perhaps around the mid-1930s."

If you have any knowledge of fashions in children's' clothes (and boots!) and can help to estimate the date when these photos were taken, please e-mail me.    Thank you    -  Peter Stubbs

I have been unable to trace who now owns the copyright to Burlington Studio photographs.

Can anybody help me to answer this question?

My Father

"Here is a photo of my father, George Spence Donaghy, taken at Burlington Studios in 1944. He was on leave from RAF Bomber Command when this was taken.

Both he and my mother are still living, now aged 90 and 86 respectively."

Burlington Studio

"According to my mother, this was the main central photo in the window at the Burlington Studio, which was 'situated at the bottom of Dalry Road not far from Haymarket Station'. "
