John Weir

Album Print

High Street, Moffat

The first photo below is is an interesting 'period' photograph of the High Street in Moffat with a stage coach.  It is taken from an albumen print approx. 8 ins x 5.5 ins.

Moffat lies about 50 miles to the south of Edinburgh on one of the Edinburgh to London routes.

The second photo below is a carte de visite from his Holyrood Saloon at 58 Canongate, Edinburgh.  This is no a studio address that I have found for him in any of the trade directories (which appear to track his business from  1867 until 1889, when he was based at 50 Canongate and 6 Roxburgh Place - so I don't know when the photo below might have been taken.

Maybe he was based at 58 Canongate for just a few months early in his career, and did not stay there for long enough to feature in one of the trade directories.  The trade directories were published annually.  John Marley who sent me a copy of this photo tells me that he bought it from an antique dealer in The Hague, and that the back of the card is plain.
