These are the brief details that I have extracted from the
Edinburgh & Leith Post Office Directories:
- From 1902 until 1923, Alfred Henry Rushbrook
worked at Grange Photo Works, 161 Causewayside. He advertised:
Photographic Printer and
- From 1924 until his death in 1937,
beside KW Murray at Nicolson Street.
Photographs by Alfred H Rushbrook are in a number of
Edinburgh collections. In particular, photos taken to record the
streets of the St Leonard's district of Edinburgh, before the buildings
were demolished as part of a slum-clearance program are held by the
Edinburgh Room at Edinburgh Central Library, the National Library of
Scotland and the Edinburgh City Archive.
These 'St Loenard's
Survey' photographs are in two volumes, one dated 1927, the other
1929. They were commissioned by the Edinburgh Improvement Trust.
The Life of Alfred Henry Rushbrook
Rushbrook's son, Dr Frank Rushbrook CBE, has undertaken the
very worthwhile task of writing an account of his father's life and
attempting to trace some of his photographs.
Thank you to
Dr Frank Rushbrook for allowing me to reproduce the following account.
