Thank you to David Waters,
Jersey, Channel Islands, for sending me this photograph of an oil painting of his great great
grandfather, James Hamilton, 9th Lord Belhaven & Stenton 1822-1893.
David tells me that the
subject appears to be in his 50s, so that would make the painting about
1875-ish. It is signed
However, David wrote:
interesting thing is that the signature looks like the ones on your site
but on the back of the picture there is a piece of paper “ Horsburgh,
Victor D Exh.1901-1935 Edinburgh 1901; Toronto, Canada 1935. RSA 5”.
I am not sure what that means!
