The two great giants of early photographic firms in Scotland were James Valentine & Sons of Dundee and George Washington Wilson Co. based in Aberdeen.
The bulk of the University's George Washington Wilson material was collected over many years by Mr David Jamieson, who very kindly donated his collection to us in 2017.
Although we hold a significant number of stereoviews, prints and postcards, the University of Aberdeen - Special Collections holds the glass plate negatives, archive papers and family material.
