I have a picture of my gg uncle taken in the mid 1800's by a "Carl
Jurgensen, Photographer & Artist" 9 Chatham Street, Fort Colombo, Ceylon.
On the front it is called a Cabinet Portrait. Does anyone know of his
photographer and the time frame he worked in or what a Cabinet portrait is?
Family lore says that there was an Axelander Cleland and a George Wait who
were tea planters. Martha Cleland and her three children may have escaped
at the time of the Lucknow Riots and later turn up at her birthplace in
North Berwick, but I have not been able to find passage back and forth.
Any hints wold be appreciated.
