Footnotes

  • A STRIKING, UNTRIMMED PRINT. In April 1846, Hill and Adamson photographed various members of the 42nd Gordon Highlanders as studies for Hill's painting "Edinburgh Old and New" (also known as "Edinburgh from the Castle"), which he completed in 1847. Having returned from the West Indies in July 1845, the regiment was stationed at Edinburgh Castle until its move to Ireland in April 1846, and later the Ionian Islands and Gibraltar (National Galleries Scotland, note accompanying PGP HA 2661).
