Colin Campbell

31 Princes Street

Updates

1) Thank you to Evelyn Hunt for also sending me, on 16 February 2012, a copy of a postcard portrait by Colin Campbell,  giving the 31 Princes Street address.  Evelyn tells me that the date written on the back of this photo is 'About 1919'.

2) Thank you to Keith Browning for sending me this copy of a postcard portrait by Colin Campbell.  This also gives the 31 Princes Street address.  Keith tells me that the portrait is of his grandfather, Arthur James Browning.  Keith  believes the photo would have been taken around 1917.

3) Jenny Scott for also writing with information about Colin Campbell's studio at 31 Princes Street.  Jenny wrote:  "I have a photograph of my grandfather taken by photographer Colin Campbell who gives his address as 31 Princes Street.  The photo is on my Flickr site.  My grandfather's service record shows:

Sep 1917:  detached to England, on leave

Aug 1918:  detached to UK on leave

Mar 1919:  posted to UK, on duty.

4) Thank you to Pieter Grootes, Best, The Netherlands, for telling me on 28 October 2012 that he has a photo in his family collection by Colin Campbell, 31 Princes Street, which he guesses was taken in 1908.  So it appears that Colin Campbell was working from this address much earlier than I had expected, despite lack of any info on him in the trade directories at that time.

5) Thank you to Jean Shillcock for sending me, on 5 February 2014, an Autotype photo of a painting of a horse named Rainbow.  Jean told me that the photo is embossed in the bottom-left corner with the Autotype logo "sun-like rays above the lettersof 'AUTOTYPE' and has the name 'Campbell Photo Edinburgh' next to this logo. Please email me if you know which of the Campbells this mightrefer to, and when the photo might date from.

6) Thank you also to Mark Robertson  for giving me further evidence that Colin Campbell was in business as a photographer at 31 Princes Street before 1916.  Mark Robertson told me on 23 November 2016 that he has a postcard portrait of his grandfather from WW1 which has a 'raised watermark' in the lower-right corner, reading: "Taken in Edinburgh, Scotland, 1915.  Mark tells me that his grandfather pencilled in: "Taken in Edinburgh, 1915" and that it looks as if the '5' is a correction over what was first written as a '6'.
