'Standard Life'

I began my first job in 1963, working as an Actuarial Student for Standard Life.  I worked for the company until my retiral, 40 years later.
This is how the imposing front entrance of Standard Life's Head Office looked, around the time that I joined the company.

Most of my photography at this time was of family - and holidays, many in Scotland:

EdinPhoto  -  Launch

Since 1990, I've been spending more time researching the history of photography in Edinburgh.  I wrote a couple of booklets on:

1.  History of Edinburgh Photographic Society

2.  Professional Photographers in Edinburgh

Around 2000, I decided to create a web site to hold my research, so that it could be shared with a wider audience,

So I created the EdinPhoto web site.  These are the subjects that I included when I set up the site.

         

 

 

 

 

_____________________________

 

EdinPhoto  -  Development

Within a year or two, the scope of the EdinPhoto web site had expanded to include other topics

3.  Scottish Railway Stations

4.  Edinburgh at Work

5.  Trams, Buses, Railways, Ships, Other Transport

6.  Lamp Posts, Police Boxes, Other Street Furniture, Graffiti

7.  Maps, Aerial Photos, Engravings, Postcards

8.  Edinburgh Views:  Streets, Buildings, Districts

9.  Recollections

Below are examples of photos and information added to the web site for each of these categories:

Recollections

Coal Lorry Accident  at the  Foot of Arthur Street

Many of the photos on the EdinPhoto web site, including the photo above, have prompted people to write to me, giving their recollections of  places and events in Edinburgh.

I've found these recollections to be interesting.  Many speak of everyday life, particularly growing up in some of the more deprived areas of the city.  I have added a 'Recollections' section to the web site and it has grown rapidly.

Below are a few more of the photos that people have responded to.  Thank you to all who have sent their recollections to me.

EdinPhoto  - The Future?

The EdinPhoto site is now running on old technology which can be difficult and sometimes a little unreliable to use, compared to newer social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

To rewrite the whole site using newer technology would involve far more time than I have available.  It is a large site. When I last counted, the site had about 27,000 pages and 26,000 photos (not counting all the thumbnail photos).

Thank you

Thank you to all who have contributed to the site.   I may find at some stage that I can add no more updates to the web site.

However, I will do all I can to ensure that EdinPhoto does not vanish, and that people will be able to continue to search and browse the existing content of the site.

More Photography?

I'm now making more use of my iPad and my MacBook computer for photography, including video clips. 

So far, I've created about 50 short videos.  Maybe one day some of them will find their way onto the EdinPhoto site or onto YouTube
