Description British soldier and photographer
Fourth and youngest son of David Brewster. British Army Captain with 76th Regiment of Foot, Royal Scots (1840s). Later rose to rank of Lieutenant-colonel (1863). Retired with honorary rank of Major-general (1872). Made honorary member of St Andrews Literary and Philosophical Society (1840). Produced photographic works using the Calotype process which had been developed by his father's collaborator, Henry Fox Talbot. (1840s) May have received a camera via his father from Edinburgh optician Thomas Davidson - in order to photograph his regiment while assigned to Cork in Ireland. Largest surviving group of his Calotype works depict soldiers and barracks in Cork city and county. These are understood to have been taken before the regiment transferred out of Cork (by May 1843). Henry Craigie Brewster was later posted to Plymouth, and further to Corfu and Cephalonia (from where he sent home pen-and-ink sketches - rather than further photographic works).
