Reply to Winifred
Thank you, Winifred, for telling me about the book above.
I had not previously been aware of it or of the photos in it.
However, the photo on the cover appears to be of Craigmillar
The illustration on the book cover can be compared below with
an engraving of the castle (in much better state of repair)
publishe in 'Modern Athens' in 1829.

The Patrick Family
My research into the Patrick family has not been very
extensive. It has mainly been the result of:
- collecting photographs taken in and around Edinburgh by
James Patrick, dating from around the 1890s.
- collecting postcards of Edinburgh published by James Patrick
and his son John, also a photographer. These date from
around the early-1900s.
- reading in contemporary photographic journals about some of
the lantern slide lectures presented jointly by John and his
sister Jessie to Edinburgh Photographic Society in the 1890s.
