Portrait of James Hamilton

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 Horsburgh, Edinburgh.

However, David wrote:

"The 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!
