John Moffat

Ambrotypes

1.

Thank you to Philip Mernick, London, for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of an Ambrotype that he bought in Rye, Sussex, England on November 20, 2010.

The name on the case is

60 PRINCES STREET

MOFFAT

EDINBURGH

John Moffat was only based at 60 Princes Street for two years, 1858 to 1860, so the photo can be dated fairly accurately.  The subject of the photo is not known.

Philip Mernick, London, England:  November 21+27, 2010
