Cumming Brothers

and JD Cumming

Thank you to Ron Cosens who runs the author of www.cartedevisite.co.uk web site for sending me this copy of a carte de visite by Cumming Brothers.  It has a rubber stamp impression for J D Cumming, Tranent, on the back.

Tranent is in East Lothian, about ten miles to the east of Edinburgh.  In comparison to Edinburgh I would not have thought there would have been a lot of demand for photography in Tranent.

This carte de visite seems to demonstrate a connection between Cumming Brothers and J D Cumming, but who was J D Cumming?  Was he James Cumming (above) or was he John Cumming (above)?

 

Question

Ron who supplied this image says.

"Do you know what sort of hat the sitter is wearing?

Is he in some specific sort of Scottish workman's clothes?"

I don't know the answers to these questions.  If you can help to answer them, please e-mail me.    Thank you.  -  Peter Stubbs
