A New Business - We beg to draw the attention of the public Waimate to the advertisement of Mr Arthur J. Cox, photographer, which appears in another column of this issue. We have visited his studio and found it to be well lighted and well appointed in every way. Mr Cox has provided all the necessary back-grounds and accessories, in fact every thing to be found in a first class city studio so that patrons may be photographed in a manner equal to Dunedin or Christchurch work. A visit to his window is sufficient to convince intending patrons of the excellence of his work. We trust that Mr Cox will receive the patronage of the Waimate residents for his enterprise in supplying a long felt want.

I am researching my family history and have been given a photo taken by Arthur Fox in 1900.
The subject was the Philip Family and was taken at the family home in Waimate.
Does anybody know what happened to the plates for photos taken by Arthur Fox?
