I found this one among a collection of old various FRISKEN family photos.  I'm doing a One Name Study of this family name - please let me know if you have any clues as to the individual.  I have further information and a large tree of all the associated families in the area of Coldstream at the time the photo was likely to have been taken.

It would be very useful to know if the photographer John Foster used different logos on the rear of the prints during his time in Coldstream.

Hi Ross, I know this was posted a long while ago but it was an interesting recent find for me.  John Foster is also my 3 x grand uncle.  I am descended from John's sister Jane who married Robert Davidson in Coldstream.  I have found a few photos taken by John recently on Ebay and made digital copies.  Happy to forward to you in case you don't already have them.  Just wish I knew who the sitters were!

Hi Ed, As I am new on here, it appears I am unable to PM you directly to send attachments until I have posted a few more messages on here.  I have the photos all copied onto a Word doc and there are 3 different logo designs on them but I'm not sure how I can get them to you.  I think if you search on Ebay for 'John Foster Coldstream' they should still all show up.  Sorry!!

Hi Ross and Wend
I was just trying to get info on a photo I have and stumbled upon your message board. If you are still interested, I have a photo with the following stamp on the back: "Photographed by John Foster, High Street, Coldstream." Happy to send you a digital copy of both the front and back. It's a rather gorgeous picture of an ancestor named Annie Bolton in her prime. You might need to let me know how I can send it to you. Can we do private messages here?
All the best,
Corinne

Hi Corrine

Thanks  :)
