Activity

1907 - 1914 Anvers, Rue Léopold, 55<07-10> or 69<11-14>
Also Adolphe, ° 31.8.1873; + 17.3.1938. Sometimes spelled "Nietsche" in the directories. Arrived in Antwerp on 10.5.1906 from Lausanne [CH], Rue du Grand Pont, 4, address of his elder brother Georges Nitsche's studio. A print at this address dated 1908 is signed "Nitsche & Gerhäuser". This must be a brief partnership with Adolf Gerhäuser or Gerhauser (see that name), registered in Antwerp since 1904 and shortly before moving to Brussels and operating there on his own account.
1910 - 1913 Anvers, Rue Leys, 1/2<10> or 5<11-13>
CAB, no street addresses, with blind stamp "A. Nitsche / Anvers / Gand" from this period, a rare indication that studios were operating simultaneously in both localities for a short time. Called up in World War I, Nitsche was reportedly an official photographer in the German army. Left Antwerp shortly after the Armistice of November 1918 and subsequently operated in Rotterdam [NL].
