-  3 aristotype prints  "Road to Auchencairn" 
"Road near Dalbeattie"
  [one other]

-  1 platinotype print  - "Alone at Sea"

-  2 bromide prints

The following year, John Ogden Young was listed amongst a list of  photographers in The Practical Photographer, giving his address as 20 Lorne Street.  See below.

In the 1890s, Messrs Percy Lund & Co, publishers of the journal, The Practical Photographer, offered to undertake the registration of any photograph or drawing for a fee of 1/6d. 

They offered to reproduce in miniature any  photographs that they believed to be of exceptional interest and suitable for publication.   Each edition of  The Photographic Journal included a list of photographs registered during the past month.
