This is “Finlay, deerstalker in the employ of Campbell of Islay” taken around 1845. Thought to be one of the first photographs of a civilian wearing tartan. The Campbell family owned Islay until 1853.
Not sure where this one came from, but it’s my new motto.
I’m finely tuning my tartan senses, so I’m always on the prowl for things “plaid.” This delicious find came from a local consignment store. $14 US for the set of 4. Made in England by Hudson and Middleton, and in very good condition!
These will be perfect with a cuppa and my Grandmom’s shortbread.
“Pathetically labeled the “Skotch Cooler.””
