Photography. — Mr G. E. A. Burrell, photographer, of Chester street, Christchurch, has on view in the shop window of Mr Buckner, picture-frame maker, Victoria street, a large frame of photographs, representing the Salvation Army New Zealand staff, March, 1891. The group has been taken as a memento of the occasion of Colonel Taylor's farewell to New Zealand. The officers are taken cabinet size, with the exception of the centre portrait, I which is much larger. The likenesses and general expression of each figure has been faithfully caught and brought out, and finished off in the best style. The photographs are mounted on a beautifully illuminated card, and set off in a massive gilt frame. Great credit is due to Mr Burrell for the way in which he has carried out the work. - Star , Issue 7174, 27 May 1891, Page 3
