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

"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?"
