George Kilgour

54 Cockburn Street

George Kilgour appeared briefly in the Edinburgh Trade Directories, based at 54 Cockburn Street, 1907-1910.

The address on the front of one of his Cabinet Prints is given as:

Geo. Kilgour - Edinburgh & Saltcoats.

Claude Low also appeared in the Edinburgh Trade Directories based at 54 Cockburn Street, 1898-1909.

Did these two photographers work together, or was it a case of Claude Low continuing to appear in the trade directories for a couple of years after he had left 54 Cockburn Street?


I don't have any postcard portraits by George Kilgour, so I appreciate having received the two below from Paul Wilson, formerly of Edinburgh, now living in Aberdeen.

"Although the second postcard is unmarked on the back, it has the same scenic backdrop. I know this card dates pre-1910 as the particular BB Company involved was disbanded in that year."
