Kirkcaldy Photographs

A while ago we received a query from one of our members regarding some Kirkcaldy photos – can you identify anyone in the photos below?

One of our members who would love some help identifying people sitting for photographs above.

A large number of family photographs, many of which appear to be examples of early Kirkcaldy photographers’ work, were gifted to Margaret and her sister. Ultimately, they hope to donate this collection to Kirkcaldy museum but are keen to identify as many people as possible in the following tintypes, cartes de visite and cabinet prints.

With some help from Kircaldy Museum to research the photographers, using Census records and their own family tree, they have managed to date-match a lot of the collection but there are a few that are proving a little more elusive.

The families being researched are the Wilson family who lived in Mid Street, Pathhead, Dysart from 1841 until 1881 and the Young family who lived nearby in Nether Street until 1871 when they moved to Cupar Mead, Dysart.

Please take a look at the pictures above and see if any of them, or the faces in them, seem familiar. You can send any thoughts, comments or assistance to Margaret and her sister through [email protected]

On behalf of Margaret and her sister, thank you for taking the time to look.
