Summary

The History of Photography in Edinburgh

This  web site records my research into the history of photography in Edinburgh since 1839.  It is a non-commercial web site.

The site includes early history of photography in Edinburgh; dates, addresses and background of Edinburgh's early professional photographers, and the history of photographic societies:

Edinburgh Calotype Club

-  established 1840s

Photographic Society of Scotland

-  established 1856

Edinburgh Photographic Society

-  established 1861

                             

There are now [in November 2004] about 6,000 pages on this site, together with many old photos engravings, and some of my photos I am continuing to add more pages and images to this site.    I hope you find the site interesting.
