Question

The photo above 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.

Here are more photos from the same album.

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.

Backs

I was interested to see that the date of this photo had been written on the back of the card  -  Christmas Day 1885.

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:

   The back of a carte de visite by the Edinburgh professional photographer John Ross  -  small portrait of a gentleman in an oval frame

Please also see the John Ross Studio Addresses page to read about the backs of his cartes de visite.

Studio Addresses

The card above gives the address as:

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

In fact, John Ross had left his Princes Street studio 22 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.
