Mrs and Miss Wardrop

Mrs and Miss Wardrop, two well-to-do Glasgow ladies, photographed at the entrance to their house in 1856 by Duncan Brown.

The ladies are both well-dressed, and Mrs Wardrop is holding a book, presumably a copy of the Bible. The notes which accompany the photograph state that the ladies are members of an old Glasgow family so it is possible that they were descendants of the tobacco merchants of that name.

Duncan Brown (1819-1897) was a talented amateur photographer whose work documents aspects of Glasgow life from the 1850s until the 1890s.
