Pierre Victor, ° 3.8.1821; + 14.4.1895. Daguerreotypist. He took over the management of the studio at this address from his elder brother, Alphonse. His sister Marie Agnès Josephine Ernestine Plumier (° Liège, 31.12.1824) also lived here and most probably assisted her brothers in the studio. This address is believed to have remained Victor's domicile until at least 1862. However, Boisjoly states that it was his only studio from 1850 to 1867, at which date it was sold to Antoine ("Tony") Rouge.
1845 - 1865 / Paris [F], Boulevard Bonne Nouvelle, 9
Daguerreotypist and photographer. He photographed the baptism of the Imperial Prince Louis-Napoléon in 1856, in collaboration with Fréderic von Martens. The studio was acquired by Charles Louis Klary in November 1865, after which Victor Plumier lived in Neuilly, Impasse de la Pointe. According to Voignier, J.M. Répertoire des photographes de France au 19e siècle, Chevilly-Larue, 1993, he became a manufacturer of starch in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges and Orléans. Victor reappears as a person of private means in Comblain-au-Pont, where he was domiciled on 19.3.1869. He was still there in 1878, when he acted as a witness at the wedding in Liège of his niece to Léon Dorée (see that name). He subsequently returned to Belgium since, again described as a person of private means, he witnessed a sister-in-law's death certificate in Liège on 26.1.1887. At the time of his death, he was domiciled in Liège, Quai de Fragnée, 48.
