Biography
William Drummond Young (1854-1924) originally trained as a cabinet maker, before becoming an artist and portrait painter and in the 20 years before establishing a partnership with his son Edward (1876-1946), was based in Edinburgh. He was commissioned to take special portraits of King Edward VII on his way to the Great Review of September 1905, which was held in Holyrood Park.
William Drummond and Son first appeared in the Edinburgh and Leith Post Office directory in 1897 as Photo Specialists and from 1907 to 1919 traded as Drummond Young & Watson, with Douglas Home Watson, a picture photographer.
Edward, known as Buffs, was a member of the Edinburgh Photographic Society, often giving lectures there. The company of Drummond Young Ltd was at 8 Randolph Crescent from 1939-1973, when it ceased trading.
