Fronts

I was disappointed to see the quality of this photograph, compared to the work that John Ross had been producing around 25 years earlier from  his studio at Princes Street, or even from his most recent studio at Great King Street

Backs

This is one of two different styles of back that I have seen from John Ross' studio at 25 George Street.

Here is the other:

John Ross moved into his studio at 25 George Street in 1883.  However, the back of the card above refers to a Medal awarded in the Edinburgh International Exhibition 1886, so the photo must date from 1886 or later, perhaps several years later.

The card gives the address as:

'137 Princes Street.  Removed to 25 George Street.'

In fact, John Ross had left his Princes Street studio 23 years before this photo was taken.  I assume, from the back of the photo above, that he was proud of having once had a studio in Princes Street.
