James Howie Jun. continued to advertise his business in the 1850s. He placed further adverts in The Scotsman on 20, 24, 27 Aug + 3, 7, 10, 14 Sep 1852.

The 11 Oct 1854 advert below is interesting.  It speaks of James Howie, Jun. having been in business as a photographer for eleven years.  It gives the prices of some of his photographs and it describes the location of his photographic studios at 71 Princes Street.

MR J. HOWIE, Junior, in returning thanks for the liberal patronage he has experienced in Edinburgh for the last eleven years, has determined (previous to alterations in his premises) to place within the reach of all for

A SHORT SEASON
his unrivalled

with all the latest improved Splendid Apparatus, and Talented Assistants, commencing on MONDAY October 2 1854.

The advert below refers to Daguerreotype, Collodion and Calotype photography being carried out at James Howie's studio.  This advert and others below describe the studio as the American Photographic Gallery.  Howie makes no mention of this name on the back of his cartes de visite, and I have found no reference to it in any of the Edinburgh trade directories.

Prices exceedingly low.  viz. from 1s
Handsome Portrait in Morocco Case  3s 6d

Open from 9 till dusk.  Established for fourteen years.

NOTES:

1.  The last sentence in the advert above raises the question of whether Howie's studio was first opened in:
-  1839 as stated on his early cartes de visite
- unlikely! -  or
-  1840 as stated on his later cartes de visite -  or
-  1841 as this advert suggests.

1.  The address of 71-72 Princes Street is interesting.  The trade directories for this period give Howie Junior's address as being 71 Princes Street from 1852 to 1864.  However there was a gap of two years where the trade directories show no photographer being based at No72.  i.e. the period between Horatio Nelson leaving in 1853 and the Truefitt Brothers arriving in 1856.  It appears that James Howie Jun may have filled this gap.
