André Orange


André Orange was born in France in 1810 or 1811.  His wife was also born in France.  [Census: 1861].  

He was originally a daguerreotype photographer in Edinburgh (and presumably, later, a wet collodion worker) from 1853 to 1867.  

He became a Member of PSS in 1856, the year the Society was established.
