Abstract

While in Paris, Truby King met Robert Smith, a Scottish doctor who was engaged to marry Isabella Cockburn Millar. Indeed, it was Smith who provided King with a letter of introduction to the Millar family, in whose house he would eventually board in Edinburgh. Tragically Smith died soon after this and King was on hand to console Bella. A relationship formed. Bella admitted: ‘I think I fell in love with Fred’s pale face and dark eyes.’ The engagement was in early January 1886; their marriage in October 1887. She was 26; he 29. This photographs was taken at the time of their marriage.
