Photographers

Almost all the photos on this page come from a collection that was held by the family of  Horatio Ross.

The hunting, shooting and fishing scenes are very similar to photographs exhibited by Horatio Ross (1801-86) at the Photographic Society of Scotland's Exhibitions and other exhibitions in the 1850s

I believe that three of the photos above, Nos 10, 11 and 12, were taken by Horatio Ross, or set up by him.

The remainder appear to be from early in the 20th century.  Most or all may have been taken by Mrs Horatio Ross, possibly the wife of one of the grandchildren of Horatio Ross (1801-86).

Can identify any of the people, locations or photographers, or can you estimate when the photos might have been taken?   If so, please email me.  

Thank you.

Thank you to Ross MacLeod for telling me about some of the gravestones in the area connected with the Ross Family.
