James Auld

Princes Street Studio

In 1904, James Auld gave a demonstration of carbon printing to Edinburgh Photographic Society.

At that time, he had a studio at 101 Princes Street

"with a north light and electric installation”

The studio had facilities for carbon, platinotype, monochrome, water colour and oils.  His work included wedding, children, ‘at home’, group photography, and miniatures.    [IA]

Below is a cabinet print from James Auld's studio at 101 Princes Street.

Many cabinet prints had fuller details of the photographer and his studio on the back, but the back of this one is blank.

Aberdeenshire Addresses

Station Road, Ellon

57 Bogie Street, Huntly

 Please also see UPDATE below

UPDATE 1

I think that the Aberdeenshire photographer, James Auld is unlikely to be the same man as the Edinburgh photographer by that name.

I've been shown a cabinet print by the Aberdeen photographer who had studios in Huntly and Ellon.  The style of it differs from those I have seen from James Auld Edinburgh.

The Cabinet Print by James Auld (Aberdeenshire) has an elaborate 'JA' monogram in the panel below the photo that includes his studio addresses.  The Cabinet Prints by James Auld (Edinburgh) have no monogram.

UPDATE 2

Despite my comments in UPDATE 1 above, it appears that the Edinburgh Photographer is likely to be the same man as the Aberdeenshire photographer of that name.

Thank you to Dairmid Mogg who wrote:

"I see that there is some doubt about whether the James Auld of Ellon is the same as the James Auld of Edinburgh. I can confirm that he probably is. I found the following story in the Buchan and East Aberdeenshire Advertiser, 12 March 1901."

Ellon--Success of an Artist

The friends of Mr James Auld, photographer, Ellon, Huntly, and George Street, Edinburgh, will be pleased to learn that he has secured in Princes Street, Edinburgh, one of the best photographic saloons in Scotland. If energy and talent command success, Mr Auld richly deserves it.

That he is a rising photographer cannot be doubted, and the various silver and gold medals which he has gained in world-wide competition, has (sic) encouraged him to enter upon this new and extensive business.

Medals

Question

In 1901, a Royal Photographic Society Medal was won by James Auld.

Was this the same man as the photographer, James Auld (Edinburgh) and / or James Auld (Aberdeenshire) above?

[David Likar, Melbourne, Australia, has a copy of this Medal.]
