Nelson Photographic Institute

Nelson Photographic Institute
Trafalgar Street
Nelson

Photography, judging from the large number of its professors in this city, must surely be a lucrative, as it is undoubtedly a seductive art. In addition to the two leading photographic establishments, which have achieved quite a colonial reputation for the exquisite specimens of this charming art which they have produced, we have several less pretentious aspirants to popular favor, whose productions testify most satisfactorily to their skill and experience. Among these we may mention Mr Theodore Bloch, who has just returned from Wellington, and opened an establishment in Trafalgar-street, where some beautiful photographs of this city and its environs may be seen, together with others of the scenery on the Manawatu block, of which so much has been heard, and also some interesting portraits of the brave but illfated Major Von Tempsky, and some of the other officers who perished in the sad affair at Te Ruaruru.
