Edinburgh Professional Photographers

Duchauffoir & McIntyre

Duchauffoir & McIntyre were photographers based at 33 Whitfield Place   Leith, for ten years from 1855.

For the last five of these years, the company  also appears to have occupied 34 Whitfield Place.

To date I know of only two photographs by the company:

-  1855-60:  a cased ambrotype (below)

-  1860-65:  a carte de visite (here)

Several different spellings of the company's name, and variations of address have appeared in the trade directories.  See below.
