A friend of mine in the East Midlands is trying to trace any details of her family to match up with photographs (19th Century) in her possession. The family members concerned have the surnames of Thom (male) & Birrel (female born 1869) and the photographs were taken by a company A Geddes & Co, Arbroath. Is it possible that there is any information on either of these surnames, or any information available re the photographer - this would be a start in her researches. I'm sorry the detail is so vague, but any assistance would be gratefully received

hi Malcolm

I see the 1922 EASTERN FORFARSHIRE DIRECTORY AND ARBROATH YEAR BOOK for 1922 has PHOTOGRAPHERS Listed and one firm is

GEDDES , W.H.& SON, 178 HIGH STREET , ARRBROATH

maybe something to do with the A Geddes & Co firm in the town re your enquiry.

Have you or your friend emailed the ARBROATH LIBRARY or and the Signal Tower Museum or and the ANGUS ARCHIVES on this matter and emailing a copy of the photo to the angus archives for their info and they maybe give you some info on the A Geddes & Co from their archive files .

best wishes
Patrick w Anderson
