The Family Home

However, Jane Szepesi, daughter of the boy on the right in this photo, believes:

-  the  photo is unlikely to have been taken in Horsburgh's studio

- it may have been taken at the Pentland family home, Rosetta, Inverleith Gardens, in the northern suburbs of Edinburgh.

Thank you  to Jane Szepesi for giving the background information on the photograph above.

Jane Szepesi is the daughter of William Ogilvie Pentland, the boy on the right in this photo.
