Other Photographers named



Laurence S Thomson

Laurence S Thomson and Peter Thomson were also professional photographers in Edinburgh.

Was either of them related to Robert Kemp Thomson or one of the John Thomsons?

A & D Thomson

A&D Thomson was another partnership that produced carte de visite portraits.  Their address was 78 South Clerk Street; but I have not traced this company in the trade directories so do not know when they operated.  Other photographers were based at this address from 1852 until 1865.
