Robert S Webster

Robert S Webster had three studios in Edinburgh between 1894 and 1926.  He appears to have moved out of his first studio at 60 Princes Street in 1902.

Here is an advertisement in 1902, offering to let the 60 Princes Street studio:

with acknowledgement to Ron Cosens for telling me about this advert.


New Tenant

It appears to have taken some time to let this studio. 

Louis Saul Langfier moved into the studio 1904 and used it  until 1928.
