Ned Kane

Thank you to Jim Glass for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above.

Jim sent this photo to me after seeing this photograph, on the EdinPhoto web site, of the hairdresser's shop at 78 Morrison Street belonging to his great uncle, Ned Kane.

This photo would have been  taken some time between 1909 and 1920.  (Please click on the thumbnail image below to enlarge it.)

Where and when was this photograph of a row of shops, including E Kane, Hairdresser, taken?

Ned Kane

Hairdresser

"What a wonderful photo of my great-uncle's hairdresser's shop.

Edward  Kane, known to the family as Ned, was born in 1879 in Candlemaker Row.  He was a hairdresser living in Semple Court by the time of the 1901 census.

He  was the oldest of seven and looked after my grandmother as she was  still quite young when Ned's father died in 1894.

The photo above is of Ned, standing at back left, with his family and  others.

Jim added:

"Ned's own son (also Edward) is seen standing at front of this photo*.  He also  became a hairdresser.  He had three daughters, before he was killed in  Western Europe a few weeks before the end of the World War II, on  March 29, 1945, aged 31. 

He had attempted to start an abandoned  motor bike which had been booby-trapped.  He lived at 7 Violet Terrace,  off Slateford Road.  He was a Warrant Officer Class II, in the 2 Comp.  Lt. A.A./ Searchlight Bty., Royal Artillery.

*  Unfortunately, this photo has been damaged.  I have repaired it using Photoshop, but have had to reconstruct part of the face of Edward Kane Jun so it may not be a very true likeness.

Thank you to Jillian Binnie who wrote:

"I came across this photograph of the hairdresser, Ned Kane, and his family by sheer chance when researching my family tree.

Ned Kane, Hairdresser, and Family

Edward Kane is my grandfather: Ned Kane my great grandfather.

I don't know who Jim Glass is - the gentleman who forwarded you the information about the shop - but he is clearly a distant relative of mine as he says my great grandfather is his great uncle.

I was delighted to come across these photos as my information on that side of the family is patchy due to all my direct ancestors having died.

Many thanks for this interesting and exciting discovery!"
