JB Cartlidge

 

Question

Below are references to photographers named J B Cartlidge (or in one instance, Cartridge) based in

-  Fife  -  north of Edinburgh

-  Dunbar  - east of Edinburgh

-  Hawick south of Edinburgh

-  Guisboro - North Yorkshire

-  Edinburgh

Do all these refer to the same photographer, or was there more than one J B Cartlidge?

See below for further details of each of these photographers.

 

Studios

Fife

JB Cartlidge had studios in  Kirkcaldy, Fife from c.1859 

 [Fife Family History Society]

Dunbar

JB Cartlidge may be the same man as Cartlidge, partner of Mr Mackay in Dunbar, East Lothian, c.1865.

[D Richard Torrance, in his booklet, Edinburgh Photographers booklet]

Hawick

Mr Walker set up in business as a photographer in Hawick, in the Scottish Borders in July 1866.  He was in business 1866-67, and employed:

-   C Collie as Manager

-   J B College who would be in Jedburgh four days a week (and in Hawick at other times?).  He was taken to court by his employer over default of payments.

[D Richard Torrance, in his booklet, Edinburgh Photographers booklet]

Guisbro

Thank you to Ron Cosens for showing me a carte de visite from JB Cartlidge, Guisbro. 

Guisbro (or Guisborough)  is in North Yorkshire.

 I don't know when J B Cartlidge was based there.  Ron Cosens estimates from the style of the carte de visite that it is likely to be within a few years of 1870.

Edinburgh

J  B Cartlidge  -  Photo 3          J B Cartlidge  -  Back of Photo 3

I have not found JB Cartlidge listed as a photographer in any of the Trade Directories, but I have seen the advert below on the back of one of his cartes de visite.

   JB Cartlidge

 Advert on the back of cartes de visite

Artist, late partner and principal artist

 to the Edinburgh Photo Company.

The address on  J B Cartlidge's cartes de visite was sometimes
1 Hanover Street ,  sometimes  Hanover Street - Princes Street.

Some of his cartes de visite gave the studio name: Edinburgh Photographic Gallery which was based at 1 Hanover St, 1866-69.

I believe that his Edinburgh cartes de visite may have been produced around 1870.

 

Exhibitions

PSS Exhibition - 1864

JB Cartlidge exhibited three frames of cartes de visite in the 8th exhibition of the Photographic Society of Scotland in February 1864.

Many thanks to Richard H Wilson great-grandson of J B Cartlidge who provided the following additional information.
