BLACK WATCH. A cabinet portrait of a young Highlander in white jacket and plaid


A cabinet portrait, 108 x 116cm] on the photographer’s card of J Short, 8 Mathieson Street, Glasgow, showing a young Highlander in strikingly confident pose wearing a white jacket with plaid. He holds a cane and his glengarry rests against his arm and is probably a member of the 2nd Battalion, perhaps awaiting overseas service although the white jacket was sometimes worn at home. The photograph probably dates from the early 1890s.
