Card-mounted, black & white photograph across Crossapol Bay with Beinn Hough in the backround. Taken from An Àird, Tràigh Bhàigh, by well-known art photographer Andrew Swan Watson around 1910. Watson worked in photography from at least as early as 1884 until around 1930, had a studio in Edinburgh, was the President of the Edinburgh Professional Photographers Society, won several European awards, and was noted for his photographs of clouds. This landscape shot may be one of the earliest ever taken. Information about Watson and his studio on label on reverse.
