Thank you to Niall Scott for doing some research into photographers named Scott, then writing:

Miss N B Scott

"The list of professional photographers on the EdinPhoto web site includes a Miss NB Scott listed as being a professional photographer at 129 Gilmore Place, 1919.

That address rang bells and after checking I found that this was Miss Helen Beattie Scott was a great grand aunt of mine (1871-1940).  She was the daughter of George Scott of Robertson & Scott, Advertising Agents

She appears as being an 'Assistant Photographer' in the 1891 census:

In 1901 she was a Retoucher

- In 1907 when her aunt died she was living at 129, Gilmore Place.

In 1911 she was a photographic retoucher.

-  In 1923 she appears to have emigrated to Canada but returned to Edinburgh

-  In 1940  she died in Edinburgh."

M&T Scott

Thomas Scott

"The list of professional photographers on the EdinPhoto web site also includes the following photographic studios at 36 George Street:

-  1885-91:  M&T Scott

-  1889-91:  Thomas Scott

I cannot make a link from Miss NB Scott to either M&T Scott or Thomas Scott, but there is a coincidence here, as the above Robertson & Scott started life in 36, George Street."

Thank you to Jenny Goy who wrote:

The Scott Family

"I am descended from Walter John Scott.  He was my great grandfather, and was the brother of:

Michael Scott

Thomas Scott

Robert Scott

Donald Scott

James Scott,

Most of these were photographers in Edinburgh, including M&T Scott .

It is fascinating to find so many of one family all working in the same trade.

Thomas Scott, b 1828, was the father of these brothers.  He was also described in a census as photographic artist surely one of the earliest."

Walter Scott

"Walter too worked as a photographer, and had his studio in Ardrossan, and possibly also in Glasgow, but I have yet to find evidence of this. Walter died aged about 45 in Cathcart."

Jenny Goy:  November 17, 2012

Walter Scott

D Richard Torrance has published a series of useful booklets listing photographers in different parts of Scotland up to 1914.  The information in these booklets has been taken from trade directories, censuses and other sources.

They give four different Ardrossan addresses for Walter Scott, photographer, but no Glasgow addresses for him.  They are:

1893-1896:     17 Princes Street, Ardrossan

1895:               15 Princes Street, Ardrossan

1897-1911:       9 Montgomerie Street, Ardrossan

1903:                 6 Montgomerie Street, Ardrossan

Perhaps 'No 15 and No 17 both refer to the same studio. 
Perhaps 'No 6' is an typographical error and should read 'No 9'.
