James Valentine

In 1825 John Valentine established the Valentine company, printers and lithographers, in Dundee.  

His son, James Valentine, was born in 1815.  He learnt the Daguerreotype process in the late 1840s and opened a portrait studio in Dundee in early 1850s, specialising in cartes de visite.  The following decade, the Valentine company entered the photographic publishing business.    [MIT]

James Valentine's sons William Dobson Valentine (1844-1907) and George Dobson Valentine (1852-1890) succeeded him in running the family business in Dundee until George Dobson Valentine emigrated to New Zealand in 1884.
