RH McBean

Professional Photographer

RH McBean was a photographer from 1895 until 1925, commencing at 25 Albert Place.  He described himself as Calotypist.  

I have seen a copy of a photograph of St Trinianís school, Edinburgh, taken by RH McBean in 1925.

Photographic Dealer

He appears to have had a photographic business at 25 Albert Place at least a couple of years before appearing in the Edinburgh Trade Directories as a photographer at that address.  This was one of the Edinburgh addresses given for plates and dark rooms in a report in the journal, Photography in 1893.    [Photography 22 June 1893]   

He remained at 14 Albert Place until 1936, but as Dealer in Photographic Materials, rather than Photographer.
