Mr R Ramsay Russell
Artist and Photographer
26, Haymarket Terrace
"Mr R Ramsay Russell furnishes us with a good example of the modern artist
Before coming to 26, Haymarket Terrace, early in 1893, he occupied a studio at 9
Morningside Road, for four years and was for many years previous to that in
Princes Street for portrait and figure painting
[Who was he working for then?]
He still carries on the branch of the
profession at 26 Haymarket Terrace, but combined it with the various branches of
photographic work, which he has very successfully taken up.
Ar 26 Haymarket Terrace, the studio, dressing-rooms
and work-rooms are all on one floor, which is a convenience to both artist and
sitter alike, especially to the ladies waiting to be photographed in evening
The address is also much more central than that
Mr Ramsay Russell shows some very good examples of
his work in the reception room which is provided. The studio is commodious
and comfortable, well furnished and fitted with all modern appliances
kind of photo portraiture is undertaken, including cartes, cabinets, panels,
special size portraits, carbon enlargements, porcelain portraits, platinotypes,
and all the latest improves styles.
Mr Ramsay Russell also does portraits in oils, water colours or pastels, with or without the aid of photography,
and guarantees in every case a faithful likeness and highly artistic picture.
He undertakes to produce satisfactory and high class
pictures in any medium from any photo, however faded."
