The Waverley Series

"The EdinPhoto site has some of the very limited references that seem to exist on the Internet for the Waverley Series of stereo view cards.

I was wondering if you had ever seen a reference to who the publisher and photographer(s) were for the Waverley Series, or if you knew of any index list for the series."

Unfortunately, I don't have any answers to pass on to Ian.

My Collection

"I hold 27 of these cards. The way they are numbered in the frame suggest that there may have been around 300 in the series, and from the images and card style they seem to have been published in the early-1900s.

I have these from the Edinburgh set:

123:  Holyrood / Arthur's seat

148  Holyrood Fountain

152:  Holyrood Palace  (reproduced above)

190:  Scott Monument  (reproduced above)

216:  Alter, St Mary's Cathedral

295:  Ross Fountain"
