NOTE:  Joan Hall (nee Ireland) is a member of Louis Langfier's family. She points out that the London photographer, Louis Langfier of Langfier Ltd (above) was not the same person as the Edinburgh photographer,  Louis Saul Langfier.

You can view the information on the ancestry.co.uk web site in the phone directories.   It has the Royal Coat of Arms alongside Louis Langfier and Langfier Ltd.  The other photographer is Saul Langfier."
