Professional Photographer

James Lamb

Leith Studio

James Lamb was a professional photographer.  He was based at 84 Constitution Street from 1885 to 1893.

Was James related to John Lamb who had a photographic studio at 101b Princes Street from 1878 to 1900?

Cabinet Prints

I have just one cabinet print by James Lamb.  On the back of it, he advertised, using a purple-inked rubber stamp:

Speciality in Out-Door Photography

The one cabinet print that I have by James Lamb is an out-door photograph of a family group.  See below.

South Queensferry Studio

There was also a photographer named James Lamb with a studio at South Queensferry from 1897 to 1903.  I have not yet discovered whether or not this was the same man as the Leith photographer?
