According to the listings in
the Edinburgh & Leith Post Office Directory and other trade directories
from the late 19th century, Charles
Bain was a
photographer with a studio at 124 St Stephen Street, Stockbridge, about a mile to the North
of Princes Street, from 1894 to 1896.
However, the Cabinet Print and message below
received from John Gordon
suggests that C G Bain was, in fact, in business as a photographer from
that address for a longer period - at least from
1890 to 1896. Thank you, John, for providing the photo and comments below.

family. I've managed to identify all the children. The youngest sitting on
his motherís knee was born on 30 May 1889 so I date the photograph as
The photographer was C
G Bain of 124 St Stephen Street, Edinburgh , so this photo extends the
time given when he was in business on your website by about four years."
