Mr J. Innes announces having commenced business as a photographer in premises adjoining Mr Whinray's furniture warehouse. Mr Innes has gone to considerable expense in altering and fitting out an up-to-date studio, the apartments consisting of waiting, dressing and dark rooms.
The studio, which is an entirely new addition to the premises, is a large and well-lit apartment, and is replete with all necessaries appertaining to successful photography. The camera, a Dallmeyer 3B lense, is one of the latest makes, and is capable of turning out excellent work, as is evidenced by the collection of photos on view. Mr Innes is assisted by Mr Ellerback, who comes to Gisborne with exceptional references, he having occupied important positions on the staffs of Sarony and Co. and Hemus, of Auckland.
The studio was thrown open to the public on Saturday, and the work displayed was favorably commented on. The importation of a collection of the Westby series of photographs, which are printed on blue carbon paper, were especially admired, and as works of art are superior to anything of the kind imported to the colony.
