John Horsburgh

1835  -  1924

Cartes de visite

Cartes de visite were popular from the 1850s until around 1900.  They were photos measuring about 3.5"x2.25" mounted on trade cards measuring about 4" x 2.5".

The photographer's name and address usually appeared on the back of the card.  The John Horsburgh cartes de visite that I have seen have many different styles of back.  See below.

From the examples of John Horsburgh's cartes de visite that I have found,  it appears that, unlike most other Edinburgh photographers, he specialised in photographing gentlemen.
