Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
For most of the last 10 years I've been working on a book about a Scottish amateur photographer by the name of Andrew Milne who was my great great uncle. The story and Andrews work may interest readers on this forum.
As I'm now able to claim some reasonable progress and can begin plan for completing my first draft I've created a mini-website that introduces Andrew, his pictures and the story of my progress on the book.
For a period of perhaps two of three years around 1902 Andrew was a madly keen amateur who took his photography seriously enough to enter competition. With access to the railway through his job, he took his camera from one end of Scotland to the other.
I've now visited almost every location Andrew set up his camera on a tour that has given me great insights into the way he worked.
