Farson photographed Hamnett in her sixties, a regular at the Caves de France, Soho, with her dog Peter Mons Berlemont. Now calling herself 'the last of the Bohemians' Farson described her: 'Nina was still game but I could sense that her tide was ebbing. In earlier years she had filled the hours until they overflowed and now she was having to settle the debt.'
