Photographic Equipment Manufacturers

Photographic Equipment Sales

Established 1830

Lizars were first listed, as Photographic Dealers, in the Edinburgh & Leith Post Office Directories in 1899, but the sign above their door says: Established 1830.  I have not discovered when their business  first included photography.

Adverts in EPS Transactions

The adverts below all appeared in the 'Transactions of the Edinburgh Photographic Society'.  AH Baird placed monthly adverts in this publication throughout the period 1910 to 1919 (except, perhaps for the Oct 1914 to June 1915 season), appearing on the front cover almost every month.

These adverts varied frequently, and included the following.

 1912

Lizars held a Grand Removal Sale when they moved to new premises on the other side of the road in Shandwick Place

 1914

Lizars were selling the Cinescope for 5 19s 6d.

 1915

Lizars reported: "The entire Enemy Photographic Products having been cut off, British and Kodak manufacturers have grasped the opportunity ..."

 1919

Lizar's advert read:  "PEACE at last enables me to resume the production of the new series of 'Challenge' cameras, suspended during the past four years ..."
