      Clare,
      some time ago you asked if I had any information on James Whyte, photographer, of Glasgow. I have recently garnered the following – that he was born in Glasgow around 1848 and was working as a photographer between at least 1891 and 1901. He was married and had a rather large family, some of whom were still living at home in their late twenties.

    I have some George Penny (Huntly) photographs (one of which needs an identity of sitter; also some Rae & Son (cannot identify sitters, but have some clues of who they may be) and one from a Charles Treasurer of Inlgis Street, Inverness (know the istters but woudl like to know more about the photographer.
