Seasons greetings from an old friend. Hope you enjoy your Australian trip. Heard from a friend of your doings in Waimate. Sorry I could not be there.
Yrs sincerely

Photographer's negatives - the most common question I am asked relates to the current location of photographer's negatives - see this post. 

I'm not able to provide any information about photographers other than that on this site.  I'm am also not able to date photographs or assist you in identifying people in photographs you may have.  I am unable to assist in locating the current location of business records of any photographer.

I recommend the Auckland City Library's website for more information about New Zealand photographers -  http://www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/dbtw-wpd/photographers/basic_search.htm

In this issue Mr Henry Phillips, proprietor of the new Alma photographic Studio in Neil’s Building, at the corner of Dee and Spey streets, makes his opening announcement. The premises are claimed to be equal to anything of the kind in the dominion, and the advertisement which announces reduced prices for a short period in all classes of work will doubtless be read with great interest by our readers.
