J Horsburgh

Christmas Photo

Thank you to Janet White, Vancouver, Canada for telling me of one of her photos. 

Janet writes:

"I have a ?Christmas photo, on glass, of the young children of William Muir (1846-1899), taken in about 1881.  It is on glass, beautifully hand-tinted, with instructions in pencil at the bottom, to do with albumin.  It was taken by (?John) Horsburgh."

"The family lived at 74 Great King Street, and was involved with "William MUIR, Bond 9" Distillers, in South Leith.  I notice that Horsburgh is listed as a guest at the later wedding of one of the MUIR daughters, and could have taken the group photo."
