Robertson & Co., 88 Glassford St., 1891 - 1900

The cabinet card above retains the gilt and chamfered edge, and probably dates to the first few years at this address. The casually stamped name and address is in marked contrast to the exhuberant designs of a decade earlier.

The card above again shows no sign of the changes in design associated with the second half of the decade, though Robertson has now had time to get his card printed. It is unusual to see the front edge of the rug, and the right side of the backdrop, which would usually be masked out. The back is blank.
