Can I exchange
links with the EdinPhoto web site?
If your site has strong connections
with the history of photography in Edinburgh or if I feel that it
complements my site and would be of particular interest to EdinPhoto
visitors, then I will consider an exchange of links.
However, most requests have come from
other sites that have little or no real relationship to the content of the
EdinPhoto site, but are hoping to boost their ranking on Google through
exchanging links. I do not exchange links with such sites.
Can I buy
something from EdinPhoto?
I have had a few
emails from people believing that I sell photographic equipment or other
products the strangest request to date has been for the supply of 50,000
I have tried to give advice in response to
most of these
requests, but I do not sell anything.
Can I sell
something to EdinPhoto?
I do not have any
need for more equipment, or products for building web sites, etc..
So unless what you have is of particular relevance to the History of
Photography in Edinburgh, I am unlikely to be interested.
give me a job?
The edinphoto web site is my own personal web site.
I update it myself and do not employ anybody.
Duncans Chocolates give me a job in Edinburgh?
I have photographs of Duncans Chocolates on my web
site, but I have no connection with the company (which has now been taken
over) and cannot answer for them. However, I can tell you that
Duncans Chocolates no longer have works in Edinburgh. They moved
their factory to the West of Scotland around the late 1990s.
confirm details about the British Linen Bank?
I have photographs of the British Linen Bank on my
web site, but I have no connection with the company (which was taken over
many years ago and is now part of the HBoS group).
If your question relates to somebody offering large
sums of money, then treat it as a scam and don't reply to the message that
you have received.
I have a
question about Buchan's Pottery
Buchan's Pottery - Portobello
Buchan's Pottery was once a major business in
Portobello. The company is no longer there but much of their old
pottery and many of their old bottles can still be found.
I have been asked for help in identifying and
valuing some of these. I don't have any detailed knowledge to answer
However, I have been told that there
are always examples of Buchan pots and bottles for sale on eBay, so you
should be able to get an idea of their value from there.
I have a
question about a Lizars product
Wrong site! - but here is a Link.
I have had a few
emails from people believing that my site is the official Lizars site.
Lizars are an old established Edinburgh photographers / opticians. I

Where can I now
contact the Life Association of
I have received emails
from people with Life Association of Scotland policies, who have
presumably found my page of
pictures of the
LAS Office in Princes street when they searched on the web for LAS.
I have no connection with the The Life Association of Scotland, but I
can tell you that the company was taken over by Britannia Life in
