I have recently acquired a paperweight that has a 'Reliable" series Photograph pasted on the view.  It is a rectangle, 4 1/4" x 3" s 3/4" thick.

I believe that the picture in the paperweight is of Princes Street Gardens, looking west.

On the back of the picture is a label

JB Fairgrieve
7 & 9 Cockburn Street

From what little I could gather JB Fairgrieve was a printer in Edinburgh in the 1800ís.
