Notes on Edinburgh Addresses

1.  The North Pitt Street  address is a short distance to the north of Princes Street.  All other addresses are to the west of the City Centre

2.  I have eight cartes de visite by John Center in my collection.  Five of these are from his first studio, 37 North Pitt Street.

3.  The home at 3 Grove Street was described as having three rooms with windows  [1881 Census]

4.  The address, 64 Grove Street, was the address of a Bagpipe and Reed Manufacture  business being run by John Center and his brother, William, in 1901.  William died in November 1901.

[Letter written in 1901:  Veronika Ihlenfeldt]
