Thank you to Jan
Weijers, Netherlands for allowing me to reproduce this photo and
other old photos of Edinburgh.
The photo above was taken by J Patrick. Would this have been
John Patrick (1830-1923) or his son,
- John Patrick had photographic studios in Edinburgh,1884
and possibly later.
- John Patrick & Son had a studio in Edinburgh from 1890
- John Patrick & Son had a studio in Edinburgh 1896 to
- James Patrick had studios in Edinburgh, 1895 to 1907.
I've not yet
fully researched the date of this photo, but it must have been
taken in 1888 or later. (See 'Statue' paragraphs below.) Perhaps
somebody else will be able to do a little research and let me know
what they find.
