JK Munro


Here is a photo mounted on carte de visite stamped:

 'JK Munro, Photographer and Artist, Edinburgh'.

This photo is rather over-size for its mount.  I don't know whether this photo was attached to the mount originally by the photographer, or whether  it was added to the mount later, perhaps by the owner of the photo.

UPDATE:  I now believe that the photo was probably attached to the mount by the photogapher.  I've now found two more photos by JK Munro.   (See below.)  They are a better fit for their mounts than the photo above, but there are similarities in the way that all three have been mounted.

The other question that strikes me about this photo is: "What was outside the frame on the left, that everybody was looking at?"


This photos is from an album that has been donated to the Scottish Genealogy Society.  The inscription on the front of the album reads 'AG Fraser, Edinburgh, 1889'.

Most of the photos in the album are from studios in Edinburgh.  A few are from studios in Musselburgh, Leven, Walthamstow and Forfar & Kirriemuir.

Do you have any idea which family this album might have belonged to?  If so, please e-mail me, then I'll pass your message on to the Scottish Genealogy Society.

Thank you.    -  Peter Stubbs:  January 14, 2007.
