 Cartes de Visites

CdV FRONTS

Many of the subjects in cartes de visite that I have collected from Edinburgh photographers are ladies.  However, R Brown appears to have had a broader range of subjects: ladies, men, children and groups.

John Russell, great-great grandson of Richard Stuart Brown tells me:

"The lady in No 6 has very familiar looking facial features around the nose and eyes and I would venture a guess that she is genetically linked to me - maybe Richard's wife Alison?"

CdV BACKS

Amongst the many styles of back that I have seen used for R Brown's cartes de visite, the style in 1, 2 and 3 above seems by far the most common.  All that I have seen of this style have the name TH Douglas printed in the bottom corner then scored out.
