Archibald Burns was active in Edinburgh (Scotland) between 1858 and his death in the early 1880s. He provided photographs for the tourist trade and to illustrate books including Picturesque Bits from Old Edinburgh (1868). In 1871 he was appointed by the Edinburgh Improvement Trust to document an over-crowded slum area of the city after the buildings had been demolished in February 1871.[1]
