Hi Brina,
Thanks for info very interesting, John Foster who I first made the Query about is my 3 x Grand Uncle, I know he became a photographer between 1851 and 1861, but the info you sent suggest a Joseph Foster was also a photographer in Coldstream, this is very interesting as John`s brother my 3 x Great Grandfather was Joseph Foster Did they start the business together??????.
Sometimes when one delves into one`s ancestors  the answers create more questions than they answer, but perhaps that's why it such an interesting hobby.
          Are the photo`s you have Carte de Visites, the type with the address of the Photographer on the back if so would it be too cheeky to ask you for a copy of both front & back, it would be good to have a photo taken by him even if I don`t know who is is. I can send you my e-mail; address on a personal message,

         Thanks again, Best Regards.

I have an ancestor from Coldstream who was a photographer there, his name was John Foster, born  1825,Berwick-upon Tweed, in the census return 1861 he is enumerated at 30 High St, Coldstream (photographic artist). in 1871 at Dunse Rd, Old Manse Coldstream (photographer)and 1881 17 Dunse Rd (old Manse), Coldstream, (photographer) he died in 1889 Old Manse Coldstream.
My request is for any information into his professional life, is there anyone who may have old photo`s taken by him  or anyone with any suggestions where i could get any more info about his professional career.
