John Patrick (Scottish, 1830 - 1923)
John Patrick was a commercial photographer who worked in Kirkcaldy in Fife before moving to Edinburgh. He was also an amateur painter. His studio at 52 Comiston Road was 'the haunt' of many literary and artistic figures. Patrick is best known for his portraits of Thomas Carlyle, taken during Carlyle's last visit to Kirkcaldy with his family in 1874. However, the photographer's move to the more competitive Edinburgh market appears not to have been successful. On his death he was 'bereft of all through no fault of his own, unless not having money-sense is a fault'.
