"In  November 1867, George Oman and Mary Ann Rutherford were married   at 2 Stafford Street, Edinburgh.

On  his marriage certificate, George was described as a Master Photographer.  He was already living in Hawick.

His wife, Mary Ann, had been a domestic servant in Rose Street, round the corner.  The  house she lived in was  No. 198, with "1793" above the door.  It is still there."
