Parisian Photo Co.

Fronts of the Cabinet Prints

Most of the Parisian Photo Co portraits that I have seen have been of ladies;  some have been of groups; very few have been of men or children.  This contrasts with the mix of subjects found on John McKean's cartes de visite.

Tissue was originally attached to cabinet prints and cartes-de-visite in order to protect the photographs.  Most of these old photos lost their tissue many years ago, but for 13 and 14 below it is still attached and has been folded back behind the card.

Parisian Photo Co's used many different styles and typefaces for the printing below the picture on the front of the card.

Edinburgh and Leith Studios

Parisian Photo Co had  studios at:

-  1887-1914:   75 Princes Street / 1 Hanover Street, Edinburgh. 

Both addresses refer to the same building, on the corner of the two streets.

-  1889:           41 / 45 Bernard Street, Leith

Almost all the cards I have seen have been from the Edinburgh studio.

Backs of the Cabinet Prints

Parisian Photo Co's cabinet prints had a wide variety of styles of back.

It would be interesting to find some Parisian Photo Co. photos with dates written on the back then determine which style(s) of front and back the company used in different years.

Studios

Edinburgh, Galashiels, Aberdour

Here is a Parisian Photo Co cabinet print that has addresses of studios in Edinburgh and Galashiels on the back:
