Cabinet Print

Lillias Bruist

Thank you to Frances Culham, Bedfordshire, for allowing me to reproduce this cabinet print of Lillias Bruist, daughter of the early Fife and Edinburgh photographer, Thomas Bruist.

Lillias Bruist was the great  grandmother of Frances Culham.

Frances wrote:

"This picture is of my great grandmother, Lillias, at her dame school.  Lillias is the seated girl third from the right in the back row.  Apparently this was taken in 1865, when Lillias would have been ten or eleven."

A dame school was a school in which the rudiments of reading and writing were taught by a woman in her own home.
