Studio Addresses

Peter Nimmo was based at 44 South Bridge from 1863 until 1868.

His company, P Nimmo & Son was based at 39 + 44 South Bridge from 1869 until 1896.  They described their studio, on the back of  some of their cartes de visite, as University Photographic Studio.

Cartes de Visite

Most cartes de visite from the 19th century were of individual sitters in studios, but P Nimmo and Son appear to have produced quite a lot of cartes de visite of small groups.

Above there are two styles of back, one in several shades of yellow (and pink, not illustrated).  Only one of the cartes de visite above is dated.

Some of the furniture in Nimmo's studio appears to have been quite distinctive.  See the group with five children and the man seated.
