Just rotated so easier to see. Not a date expert but is  it by J Shivas?

James Shivas established his first permanent studio in Peterhead in Broad Street in 1863, although he had operated from various temporary locations since 1857. In March 1866, Shivas bought the Queen Street studio of Peterhead's principal photographer, Joseph Collier. He also acquired Collier's stock of glass plate negatives.

Thanks for bringing this up Peter  :)

I sometimes get confused by  these braided edged jackets but I have a photo of a man wearing identical waistcoat and jacket which has been dated mid 1880s.
