This was the home address of John Center, professional photographer and bagpipe maker, from 1873 until 1892.  For most of this period his shop was next door at No 1.  For the balance of the period it was a few yards further away at No 161 Morrison Street.

161 Morrison Street was another of John Center's business addresses - between 1886 and 1888.

This is the shop with the legend:

BOUGHT - SOLD - EXCHANGED

The shop is just visible in this picture behind the two figures walking out of the left hand side of the picture.
