Guthrie was a Scottish divine and philanthropist. He studied at Edinburgh University for both surgery and anatomy but then concentrated on Theology. Possessed of a commanding presence and voice, and a remarkably effective and picturesque style of oratory, he became perhaps the most popular preacher of his day in Scotland, and was associated with many forms of philanthropy, especially temperance and ragged schools, of which he was a founder. 

Biography:

John Moffat (1819-1894)
Photographer, Edinburgh. Moffat was born in Aberdeen and moved to Edinburgh in 1826. He took up photography as an amateur from about 1850, and as a professional in 1853. His business remained in Princes Street for over a hundred years. By 1887, it was employing 20 photographic assistants. John Moffat was a wet plate collodion worker who went on to take an early interest in new developments. He took stereo photographs and was one of the early bromoil workers. He changed his design on the verso of his carte de visite a number of times. The design on the back of this one was used in the years 1861-73 .
