About this memory

William and Catherine Christie Galbraith, with two of their daughters, Charlotte and Isabella.

“After some study and guesswork, I think this is of William Galbraith and his wife Catherine Christie, with two of his daughters, Charlotte and Isabella. A Kelso photographer, so would have been a holiday souvenir. At the date estimated there was a rail connection to Kelso so a trip on holiday there would have been possible.” – James Vandepeear [2008]

Photography – R Bell Studio, Kelso

Donor number: 0163-009
