Ancestral portraits from the early 20th Century
The Scottish Highlander Photo Archive (SHPA) will eventually see almost 60,000 portraits accessible online, along with the basic information that is available identifying the individuals, eg: "MacGregor, Hill Street, Tain." The database will enable Scottish expatriates and descendants the world over, who are interested in their family history, to search the archive for family matches and/or likeness and be able to buy images in print or electronic form. There is also a photo library service for publishers who wish to use images in their magazines, books, or newspapers.
The Archive consists of the photographic portraiture lifework of Andrew Paterson (1877-1948) and his son Hector G.N. Paterson (1904-1988), who operated their Inverness studio between 1895-1980.
